Associating a datapool with a test script

You can associate a test script with a datapool to use external data to drive the application instead of using a literal value.

A datapool is a test dataset, a collection of related data records. It supplies data values to the variables in a test script during test script playback.

To associate a datapool with a test script:


Procedure

  1. In the Functional Tester Projects view, select a datapool.

  2. Right-click the selected datapool and click Associate with Script.

  3. Click the + next to the project to open the list of scripts.

  4. Click one or several test scripts to associate with the datapool that you selected.

  5. Click Finish.

    CAUTION:

    If you change the datapool associated with a script, the script may run incorrectly.

  6. If you receive a message that a script is already associated with a datapool, take one of the following steps:

    • Click Yes to change the datapool associated with the script to another datapool.

    • Click No to keep the datapool associated with the script.
