This article will describe how you can find the measurement path for a specific measurement. This path is required for using the measurements widget in the dashboard, the measurement alarms as well as some functions in our APIs.
The first part of all measurement paths in WATS is the root step, which is always MainSequence Callback. This part of the path is sometimes omitted in the OI to save space, but when using the measurement path as a parameter you always need to include this.
After the root sequence step, any number of substeps may occur before the measurement name. The root sequence, sub sequences and measurement name are all separated by slash(/) character.
MainSequence Callback/SubSequence 1/Next SubSequence/Measurement
Note that when using the REST-API you will need to replace the (/)-character of the path with the paragraph sympol (¶).

Finding the measurement path in the Step Details View
You can find the measurement path in the step details view, when viewing a single step. The step details view can be accessed from any UUT, by clicking the line-chart icon of any measurement.
In the header section of the step details view (highlighted in yellow) you can see the measurement path for this measurement (excluding the Root Step). The measurement listed below has the measurement name VA, and is in the sub sequence Power-On test. The path displayed in the OI (excluding the Root Step) is Power-On test/VA. The full measurement path for the measurement displayed below would be: MainSequence Callback/Power-On test/VA.
