What is the purpose of the
<CorrelationExtractionRules> tag and the
CorrelationBinding="..." attribute within the
<QueryStringParameter ...> tag within a Visual Studio 2013 ".webtest" file?
The recorded web test for the web site I am testing has several requests that each have several extraction rules within the
<CorrelationExtractionRules> tags. There are also many query string parameters that have
CorrelationBinding="..." attributes where the
... is the same name as in a correlation extraction rule.
The web test is not working as I desire. So I have recorded additional versions of the same test to try and find the important differences and hence the identify the fault. When I use a text file compare program on these ".webtest" files there are big differences in the correlation items. Are these differences significant? Can I just ignore the correlation items?
