Hi, 

Is there any way to have a Infinite loop in Web Test?
Would a zero in here do?

Hello Ohsha,

May I ask what automation challenge you're trying to solve by using an infinite loop? Typically they are intentionally avoided and can often cause a computer crash.

No, a Loop step set to execute zero times will not achieve this. In fact it will simply not execute its containing steps at all. It will, however, accept a number as high as 999,999,999.

The only way to achieve this through Test Studio is with a loop in a coded step deliberately set to never exit.

All the best,
