can someone give me a hint how to define “post” or where to look?

and how can i define it

OK. I’ll assume you’re passing this in through the data parameter of your method.

In which case, you might use text: data, if data is a string, or maybe text:, if data is an object with a post property (which is a string).

As I don’t know what you’re passing in, I can’t actually give you a straight answer.

I am also getting same error: Failed: POST is not defined

I am running one test case, this error comes up in between of one of the page.

My config.js is as below:

//var jasmine2HtmlReporter = require(‘C:\Users\ashish_saxena\node_modules\protractor-jasmine2-html-reporter’);

framework: ‘jasmine’,
seleniumAddress: ‘http://localhost:4444/wd/hub’,
testdata: require(’…/ElementLocators/Elements.json’)


Please help me in providing solution for this.

Appreciate your help
