ReadyAPI-Environments: how to select the environment so it reflects automatically in the RestRequest
In previous versions of ReadyAPI (before the major release 3.0) I could select a particular environment in a project that changed all Endpoints of the requests of a that particule project. Also, I only had 1 Endpoint in the Environment as I was adding it.
With the major release I'm not able to do so anymore. When I select the new environment, the old Endpoint stays in the rest request. Also all webservices created in that project are within each environment created. Why please?
What am I doing wrong?
What I would like to be able to do:
When selecting a project, I want to be able to choose which environment I need to execute the tests. Even if possible to automate it later on Jenkins to execute the tests for 1 particular environment.
e.g. if I have these environments:
I will execute the TestAcceptance tests manually by clicking on the desired project. As I'm always working in the test acceptance environment to add assertions, groovyscript, adapt the testcases according the analyse, etc...
The Integration environment should be ran automatically on Jenkins, therefore I will need some code.
But in the TestAcceptance environment I have 2 different Endpoints that need to be tested: TA on the client side, and TA on our side (our team). our side is put on a server, the client side is put on a forward proxy. Both enpoints need to give the same result, and at least an HTTP 200 result.
When selecting the environment the Requests Endpoint in my project doesn't change anymore.
Can someone help me please?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think I found a solution.
In my project I had to add webservices on creation. I've added a webservice as REST request.
On creation of the TestSuite-TestCase-TestStep I needed to link to the desired webservice right?
Well, click on the project, go to the main menu and go to Environments, create a new environment, in my case PDC-TA, add the Endpoint for this environment.
Create another environment with the name eg. FSB-TA and add another Endpoint to this. In each of the endpoints you can edit it and add an authorization if you want to. For my second one I needed Admin rights. So add this while editing.
Now when I go to my project and I select a rest request and I select FSB-TA as enviromet, I see the desired endpoint in my RestRequest. Nevertheless, all the endpoint from the different webservices still remain visible in the environments.
I really can't remember what I did wrong before, but it works.
Anyway, I’ll attempt this on Monday.
Can you provide a video which shows the issue on your side. The issue should be slightly different from what @AAB experienced.
If you don't want to share the video in public, you can open a new case with our Support team here: https://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=ReadyAPI
