Simple DataSource used throughout Solution.

Post by Cyclops » Thu May 09, 2019 8:24 am

G'day,

Just wondering if it is possible to create a simple data table datasource at the SOLUTION level, so that all test suites can access it?

Use case is that I have many tests that in multiple suites that may need to access a specific DB. They will all access the same DB, however, that DB may change every now and again.

Thanks.

Hi,

As far as I know, Simple Data connector is bound with testsuite file. So no, there is most probably no way to share the simple data connector between test suites? I personally don't use simple data connectors, just because they are stored in rxtst file. I would suggest to use CSV data connector instead.
