update csv with the result of the test

Post by rsudhak » Mon Mar 11, 2019 9:58 am

I have csv as a datasource which provides data for the test, all I need to do is update the last column with the test results, how can this be achieved?

Hi,

I personally think that modifying ref. data file with test results is a bad idea. Ref. data should be used as ref. data and should stay unmodified during test run. Ref data should not be modified with test results. Just my opinion ;)

Anyway, a general code, which should help you with writing data to CSV file, can be found here:

Thanks for the reply, is there a way wherein I can get the data from a particular row while running the tests?

Hi,

Generally speaking, yes, it's possible to get rows from data connector using code. I personally would suggest not mess with code, and especially data connectors, unless absolutely necessary. Doing data connector manipulations via code could easily make your test suite unreadable and very hard to maintain. So you should stick with standard data connector workflow as much as possible.

Anyway, you can find some hints how to load and access data connector columns/rows in this post:
