Connect

Overview

The Connect operation represents the receipt of an INAP Connect. The test instance will abort if any other inbound message is received.

This message is received by the IN Tester when it is simulating the role of a Service Switching Platform (SSP).

Attributes

The operation attributes are as follows.

Attribute Type Description
type String inap.ssp_from_scp.Connect
label String An optional label for this node if it is to be the target of a branch operation.
last_component 1 / 0 If 1 performs a test that this is the last component of a TCAP_END message.
If 0 performs a test that this is not the last component of a TCAP_END message.
(Default = do not perform any test).
tcap_ac null / TCAP alias / Hex String Tests the received TCAP Application Context from the first inbound TCAP_CONTINUE / TCAP_END dialogue portion.
If null tests that we did not receive a dialogue portion.
(Default = do not perform any test).
tcap_result Integer Tests the received result value from the first inbound TCAP_CONTINUE / TCAP_END dialogue portion.
If null tests that we did not receive a dialogue portion.
(Default = do not perform any test).
tcap_result_diagnostic_user Integer Tests the received dialogue-service-user value from the first inbound TCAP_CONTINUE / TCAP_END dialogue portion.
If null tests that we did not receive a dialogue portion, or that it did not contain a user result diagnostic.
(Default = do not perform any test).
tcap_result_diagnostic_provider Integer Tests the received dialogue-service-provider value from the first inbound TCAP_CONTINUE / TCAP_END dialogue portion.
If null tests that we did not receive a dialogue portion, or that it did not contain a provider result diagnostic.
(Default = do not perform any test).
arguments Object [Required] The structure of the INAP ConnectArg we expect to receive. Expressions may be supplied within this structure.

Example

This is an example entry within the operations array:

{
    "type": "inap.scp_to_ssp.Connect",
    "arguments": {
        "destinationRoutingAddress_digits": "141430881045055",
        "destinationRoutingAddress_noa": "2"
    }
}

Arguments

The following inbound arguments are supported. Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the actual received inbound arguments will be checked for each supplied “expected” value, and Pass/Fail entries will be generated in the test instance check_log.

To check that an inbound value is NOT present, specify the argument as null.
