Changing Individual Page Resource Settings

Page resource settings start at the page level.

To view properties for any page, select and double-click it to open a Selected: <Page Name> tab in the lower panel. This tab has three sub-tabs: General and Resource Settings.

The General tab contains the editable Page Name, optional Description, and page-wide “Errors should” setting whose possible values are “fail the page” or “be recorded only”.



Click the Resource Settings tab to edit the item’s properties.

In the left section, Load Page Resources settings are presented. Load Page Resources is checked by default. Un-checking this box makes all subordinate options inactive and page resources are not loaded as part of the test at runtime.

When Load Page Resources is checked, the Static and Dynamic boxes are checked or unchecked for the selected page based on its current settings (either those used in the Create a Clip from Recording Wizard or those that were applied manually at a later time).



  • Click Use HTML Document Settings to keep or adopt settings from the given HTML document. If Dynamic is checked, and UseHTML Document Settings is clicked, then the additional custom settings below are active.
    Note: For converted clips, HTML Document settings were created when Mark the first page to dynamically retrieve its resources was checked in the Create Pages step of the wizard.
  • If Dynamic is checked, the Dynamic settings below are active. To create custom settings for Dynamic resources, click Use These Settings. When you do so, the custom settings on the right become active.


Set all of the following:

  • Errors should: either fail the clip or be recorded only depending on the stringency of testing desired.
    • Socket read timeout: Enter a value in milliseconds (ms) to set a timeout for each resource within the test set. The default is 120,000 ms (or 2 minutes).
    • Max Receive Content Length (bytes): Specify a maximum number (in bytes) for the response content. For example, for cases such as those involving large media files.

The Max Receive Content Length can also be set in the Target’s General, Content Options section, per server via the Servers > Maestro service settings (for Cloud users), and also at the individual message level in the Clip Editor.

  • Validation: Is either controlled by the target, enabled for this message, or disabled for this message.
    • If enabled for this message was selected, set Failures from among:
      • Fail the clip
      • Are recorded only
      • Honor the message setting


Check the “Retrieve nested CSS resources” checkbox to get CSS resources that are nested within first-level CSS resources. CSS retrieval beyond the first level can be turned on at the page, click, track, and composition levels by checking this box. This feature permits the user to filter all of the assets retrieved from a CSS that was dynamically retrieved, but not to filter the CSS itself. In such cases, the CSS file and its contents are retrieved without further recursion of its named assets.
