Changing multiple socket send and receive elements

You can perform global changes to multiple send and receive elements in a socket test.

About this task

With the Organize wizard, you can perform the following global changes on multiple send and receive elements:
  • Change the Custom Code data manipulation settings on selected send elements.
  • Change the Response Timeout and End Policy settings on selected receive elements

You can also apply a global change strategy that applies to all the selected send and receive elements. A change strategy can change the settings and merge send and receive elements at the same time.
