Use the same data source between project [Customer ID: RX714

Post by amirb » Thu Nov 14, 2013 7:49 am

Hello,

I want to use a data source which I've created in project A in project B.
How do I do it? I can’t seem to find any import or share function in the Data source UI..

Best Regards

You cannot share simple data connectors between projects, or between suites in the same project, as they are stored in the suite file (.rxtst).

If you need to use the same data set in different projects, your best solution is probably to use a CSV file.

You could also use Excel, but the requires Excel to be installed everywhere you are going to run the tests. I use SQL Server Express so I can setup more complex data sets, but that also requires a bit of overhead.
Shortcuts usually aren't...

Hey krstcs,
Thank you for your reply.
Well i guess that i'll need to manually duplicate them if its not possible, or really create a shared csv
