Smart Identification In QTP

Sometimes the mandatory properties of an object can be changed during run time. So, QTP will enable to the Smart Identification mechanism to identify such kind of objects.

We can configure a set of properties in smart identification dialog box to identify the objects whose properties are changed during run time. Those properties are called as Base filter properties and Optional filter properties.QTP will automatically enable the smart identification mechanism if the selected object is unable to identify.

QTP uses Base Filter Properties and Optional Filter Properties to identify the objects. Base filter properties are the properties which can't be changed until the essence of the object is changed. Assume that a web link is changed from tag A is changed to some other tag Ex: B. So, we can't call both objects are same

Assistive properties are the properties which will be used by QTP if the mandatory properties are not enough to identify the objects. These properties will not be changed on a regular basis. QTP may use ordinal identifier to identify the objects if the base filter and assistive are not enough to identify the objects.

We can get more details about the smart identification from QTP help by reading the following topics.
