How to: Edit an Existing Web Test

After you have created a Web test, you can edit it. You can add validation rules, database connections, and other properties.

Web tests open in the Web Test Editor. In the editor, you see a hierarchy tree of HTTP requests, called the request tree. You can select nodes in the request tree to view and change the properties that are associated with requests. You can also expand a request to display the nodes and parameters of the request. Additionally, you can change the parameters and properties. Typically, changes are made by using the Properties window of Visual Studio.

You can also add parameters, rules, and dependent requests to a request.
