Capability StatementΒΆ

Test Systems can declare what interactions, operations, and resources they support in the Capability Statement. These declarations are used:

  • to inform the end-user of the interactions that are unsupported by the test system during test execution.

  • to conditionally evaluate test result assertions during test execution.

  • to measure conformance of test systems against the specification. These measurements feed the Conformance Results.

  • in Test Result Publishing.

Touchstone uses the Base URL of your test system to download the Capability Statement. If the Base URL is, then Touchstone will make a GET request to: using the appropriate Accept header. Refer to the capabilities section for more details. A Capability Statement can also be uploaded to Touchstone when editing a Test System.
