Using Test Data ‚Äč

Test data is data that is specifically created and used during the testing phase of software development in order to ensure that the software is working correctly and efficiently.

Test data is typically a subset of the full data set that the software will be working with, and is carefully chosen to exercise the various features and capabilities of the software in a controlled manner.

You can load test data from a csv file/string to be used in tests. Each test run, a random row will be selected from the dataset. A row can be accessed by testdata variable in templates

Example: Authenticate a user using test credentials

data.csv

username,password
mish,12345

workflow.yml

yaml
version: "1.1"
name: Basic Auth
tests:
  example:
    testdata:
      file: data.csv
    steps:
      - name: Basic Auth
        http:
          url: https://httpbin.org/basic-auth/${{testdata.username}}/${{testdata.password}}
          method: GET
          auth:
            basic:
              username: ${{ testdata.username }}
              password: ${{ testdata.password }}
          check:
            status: 200
