Data-driven testing - how to use non-dataset data in Zephyr
Could you please advice on how I can use other data source then Zephyr data-set (eg csv, excel sheet, xml, SQL database) as input data for my manual test cases?
The manual describes that it is possible, however this doesn't explain how it can be achieved.
"Data-driven testing (DDT) is an approach to test design where the test data (input and output values) is separated from the actual test case. The test data can be stored in one or more central data sources and shared across different test cases. By storing your test data in a central repository (local storage, Excel spreadsheet, XML file, or SQL database), you can run the same test with a new set of data each time, avoiding redundant design and execution of repetitive tests cases. Toward the end of the test cycle, you can store test data to provide a clear audit trail of what was and wasn’t covered by a test."
I don't think this is actually available even though it says it is. It has been requested as a feature enhancement on the ideas board for both server and cloud. I've posted a couple of links to those 'ideas' below (for the Server version) where you could add your vote if you wish (I've added mine). Sorry that doesn't help you with your immediate requirement though.
