There are 13 linkage types which all now have their own specific investigation screen.

There are presently 3 types that are compared between the recording and the playback. This means that if the playback is different to the recording (unless suppressed) they will fail the script during playback:

  • Change Documents
  • SAP Script Forms
  • Inbound / Outbound IDoc’s

The next 6 types are used for service virtualization during the playback in order to mimic what the system does or what the user does by the bot:

  • Front-end Actions
  • Local Files
  • Application Server Files
  • SET/GET Parameters
  • User Preferences
  • Clipboard Imports

And finally, the following linkage types are used to obtain key information on business processes so that Testimony can understand links between scripts/steps or provide additional information to the user investigating the playback:

  • Number Ranges
  • Dynamic ID
  • Dynamic ID (User Prefs)
  • Spool Requests

Each linkage type can be visually seen in the investigate screen by selecting the linkage in the lower left side of the screen. Each of these are now described in the following sub-sections.
