Assert Less

This assertion is used to check if the element value described by the expression is less than a proposed value. The values can be compared as a string or number.


Name Type/Value Required
Expression Expression Yes
Value String Yes
Type ‘integer’ or ‘float’ No
Mode ‘all’ or ‘one’ No
Level ‘error’ or ‘warning’ No
Modifier ‘not’ No
Execute if item exists ‘true’ or ‘false’ No
Stop test if fails ‘true’ or ‘false’ No
Comment String No


Expression: It’s the path to the element we want to operate on (ex: payload.ProductID). See Expression for more details.

Value: The value we want to compare the expression to.

Type: The data type of the value. This attribute is optional. If no type is defined the values will be compared as strings. If the type is set the values will evaluated with the chosen comparator (ex: ‘integer’ as a whole number, ‘float’ as a decimal number).

Mode: Specify if all the same elements in the payload should match the assertion (‘all’) or if only one element (‘one’) is enough.

Level: Specify if the assertion fails whether it should be considered an ‘error’ or just a ‘warning.’ A warning will not trigger alerts (such as email or text messages).

Modifier: The assertion is considered verified if it does not pass.

Execute if item exists: The assertion is evaluated only if the element exists. This is useful when the element does not always exist.

Stop test if fails: The test will be immediately stopped if the assertion fails.

Comment: It’s a string value where you can write a note.
