- In the panel, click the Single case tab.
- Expand the Settings section.
- Select the source and the subject of the test run from the following options:
- Select Data Transform and specify a data transform instance as the source of the test run.
- Select Data set and specify a data set instance as the source and a value for each key property as the subject of the test run.
- Select Data flow and specify a data flow instance as the source and a value for each key property as the subject of the test run.
Note: For the Subject ID field, the interface displays the first ten customer IDs that are available for selection. Select a different ID by typing its name.
- If the Strategy rule that you are testing uses external input from another Strategy

- Optional: To obtain the input directly from the component that generates it, select the
Specify a single component within the strategy check box and

- A warning sign for a lack of optimization
- Optional: To see the results for a specific non-optimized strategy component, click that component.
- Optional: To convert the test into a PegaUnit test case, click Convert to
test. A test case allows you to compare the expected output of a test to actual test results. For information about configuring test cases, see Modifying PegaUnit test cases.
