    You may report the issue with Smartbear customer support.

     

    Mean while you can try below if you want UUID.

    In the Data Source drop down box, select Groovy

    And add below line.

     

    # assuming that test_id is property you have added on left side
    result['test_id'] = UUID.randomUUID().toString()	

     Please if this resolves the issue for now and let you proceed.

      Hey nemowbray,

      If you just need unique GUIDs/UUIDs in certain fields in your payloads you can try the dynamic scripting option as follows:

      "jsonAttribute": "${=java.util.uuid.randomuuid()}"

      Using the above you wont need to use the datagenerator.

      Cant actually take credit for this as it was nmrao that showed me!πŸ˜‰

      Nice one
