Data Driven Testing is a testing methodology in which the same sequence of test steps are performed repeatedly using a data source to drive the input values of those steps and/or the values to expect when performing verification steps. Test Studio can be used for data driven testing. It supports five different data sources:
How to create a data driven test using local data follow these directions.
Create an external data driven test by following these steps:
- Add a data source to your test project - select from where to get the data.
- Bind the data source to your test - since you may have multiple data source definitions in your test project, you need to bind your data driven test to a specific data source.
- Attach the data source columns to input values - connect the inputs of your test to specific columns of the data source.
- Attach the data source columns to verifications - connect the expected values of verifications to specific columns of the data source
