Losing changes made to a script


Losing changes made to a script

I have followed this thread


And I am a Local admin in my machine when I am using ReadyAPI, I am losing my changes many times, and as i am making changes to script type variables only.

So most of the time my script is failing as the changes are not saved.


Kindly let me know if there is something else that can be done to resolve it.

I m @ 3.2.5 right now.

@HimanshuTayal This is what I thought about too, actually! Great thinking Himanshu.

Could you create a new post here with this function and tag it 'techcorner'? I think it will be just fair that you are the author🙂

Thanks for sharing the function, no offence but i m not using my Datagen test step for creating some random values for fields, I m using it for some other purpose.

However if I have to generate some random or few specific conditioned data, I would prefer to use the DataSource---> Data Generator feature as it very easy and flexible to use.



Fortunately after changing the settings in the Preference as mentioned in one of your earlier threads, for now I have observed my changes are not getting lost, still I will keep a tab on it for a while.


@sonya_m , you can mark this thread as resolved/Closed.


Thank you all for your support.
