iTest: What is the use of blocking mapping?

Environment/Versions
  • Spirent iTest.
Answer
  • A block is an identifiable section of the response that consists of one or more lines of text.
  • We can use block response maps to represent any response that does not have a structured format (indented text is not a structured format).
Create a block response map when the following conditions are all true:
  • Extract many values from a response (that is, you’d have to create a lot of regex maps to extract all the data you need) 
  • Reuse the map in a variety of test cases 
  • The data is not in the form of a table. In simple terms, use a block map when the response looks like a paragraph of text with values embedded in the text.
