Enabling/Disabling Automatic Refresh Lookups at start up

By default, Enterprise Tester is automatically set to refresh lookups on startup of the application. In the web.config file, by default defecttracking.settings.populator.syncuncachedonstartup is set to ‘true’. This initially triggers a check for “uncached” projects. If “uncached” projects are found, a refresh lookups synchronisation is triggered at startup. To disable, set defecttracking.settings.populator.syncuncachedonstartup is set to ‘false’.

In the web.config file, locate the appSetting section and add the following key value pair to disable the automatic refesh lookups at start up.

<appSettings>
   <add key="defecttracking.settings.populator.syncuncachedonstartup" value="false" />   
</appSettings>

Enabling/Disabling Automatic Refresh Lookups when a new project link is created

By default, Enterprise Tester is automatically set to refresh lookups when a new project link is created under the Resources tab. In the web.config file, by default externaldata.createlink.autorefreshlookups is set to ‘true’. This triggers a refresh of all the cached custom/inbuilt field data when a project link is created. The refresh process will only work if the defect tracker is also enabled. To disable the automatic refresh lookup, change externaldata.createlink.autorefreshlookups to ‘false’.

In the web.config file, locate the appSetting section and add the following key value pair to disable the automatic refesh lookups at start up.

<appSettings>
   <add key="externaldata.createlink.autorefreshlookups" value="false" />   
</appSettings>
