Edit end point in environment configuration at once for all APIs

Dear mates,


Could you please help this please..

I have setup one environment via "Configure Environments" in ReadyAPI. Let's take environment name as 'test11'. For various APIs, I have given required end point and authentication profile. And I wanted copy  'test11' and modify the end point to something else for SIT. Now, how can I modify the end point for all API's at once if  there are 100 API's.




The screen above has 3 entries and I want to modify to something else. If there are 100 entries like this, I have to edit 100 times and change the end point. Its a huge manual work. Is there any way I can change at once place and it will change for all 100 API's in that environment.

    Hey ravienu 



    Have you thought about dumping the 'Environments' functionality and just using a project level properties file instead?  I tried setting up multiple environments a while back and had trouble - then Rao suggested using a properties file instead.


    What I mean is, I setup a project's tests, but I'm able to switch environments by loading in an environment specific project level properties file before execution begins.  I have a .properties file - 1 for each environment.


    All my environment specific variables/parms (usernames, passwords, tokens, URLs, URIs) go into my properties file.  I just load it in before execution and I've parameterised everything in my tests to source those project level properties.  Works brilliantly!  I don't even bother with the Environments functionality cos it works so well.


    I know it isn't the answer you were hoping for, but it's a workaround to your issue.

      Thanks richie ,

      Yeah seems you are correct, looks like using properties file is a good idea. I will change to it in sometime. But unfortunately I dont have that much luxury now as our testing phase in progress. 


      Hi nmrao , could you please suggest some quick solution for my issue for now.... Thank you very much.

    Isn't it you choose environment and all the endpoints gets changed automatically? At least that is what my expectation from environments features. By the way, never used it.
