Setting the locale for a Testsheet
The Studio enables you to pass the locale for a request into its Tester. The setting applies to tests run in Studio and run against Server. The chosen locale property is then stored with the Testsheet, and any exported XML or JSON files from the Testsheet. If the Locale is not set, then a Locale value is not sent in the request. The default value is the Server default.
To set the locale on a Testsheet:
1. Open the Ruletest in its editor, and then choose a Testsheet on which you want to set the locale.

<ExecutionProperty name="PROPERTY_EXECUTION_LOCALE" value="fr" />
"__metadataRoot": {"#locale": "fr"},
