As we see step 6 is a Coded Step. We need to debug this step. To being with we cannot debug a particular line of coded step in Test Studio desktop version.

Putting breakpoint at Test Step level is simple. However our requirement is to debug particular line of code in Coded Step. We cannot do this in Test Studio Desktop version. But this can be done in Test Studio plug-in of Visual Studio. So we need to follow below steps to debug coded step.

Very first open Test in Visual Studio and put a breakpoint in line of the code we need to debug. This can be done as follows,
