Assert on Object Count

Compare typeThe type of comparison to be made: either 'Equals', 'Greater-than' / 'Greater-than or equal to' or 'Less-than' / 'Less-than or equal to'.
Expected object countThe expected value of the attribute when executing the test.

Business rules

Asserts on object count can be defined either on Retrieve Object Teststeps or on Microflow Teststeps that return a list of objects.
