The Action step calls code modules that do not perform tests but instead perform actions necessary for testing, such as initializing an instrument.

By default, Action steps do not pass or fail. The step type does not modify the step status. Therefore, the status for an Action step is Done or Error unless the code module specifically sets another status for the step or the step calls a subsequence that fails. When an action uses the Sequence Adapter to call a subsequence, and the subsequence fails, the Sequence Adapter sets the status of the step to Failed.

Configuring the Step

Use the adapter-specific edit tab in the TestStand Sequence Editor or dialog box in a TestStand User Interface to configure the Action step.

Step Properties

The Action step type does not define any additional step properties other than the common custom properties all steps contain.
