Testing the lower strategies

Suggest edit Updated on January 19, 2022

Once you identify the point in the framework where you are seeing unexpected results, you may want to test that sub-strategy and perhaps some related strategies.

For this, you will need to create a more sophisticated strategy for use as the external inputs strategy to ensure that all of the appropriate context actions are available, and that your strategy results contain the output from all of the required steps prior to the sub-strategy that you wish to test.

The simplest way to ensure that your external input strategy has executed each of the steps prior to the one you want to test is to actually use the NBA Strategy Framework itself as the input strategy, and specify the single component to use within the strategy as the one immediately prior to the one you wish to test.

The problem with this is that the NBA Strategy Framework has an External Input component, and there is no way to specify an external input strategy within an external input strategy. To overcome this, you will need to make a copy of the NBA Strategy Framework strategy, disable external input, and then provide a set of actions to use as input for the tests.
