Running bash command in ReadyAPI groovy steps

Hello Team,

 

I have created a groovy step in my test case to execute the below bash command. When I try to run this command, then I get a below error from execution. I have tried the number of different things to make the bash command work but I didn't found any solution so far.

 

OS: mac 

bash command:

def process = "aws-azure-login".execute()
process.waitFor()
log.info "Output: " + process.text
log.info "Exit code: " + process.exitValue()

 

Error:

ERROR: An error occurred [Cannot run program "brew": error=2, No such file or directory], see error log for details

 

Also, just to make sure I have created 'bashCommand.groovy' class file in my visual studio and that is working fine but not sure why the same thing is not working in ReadyAPI groovy steps. So far I have noticed that when I pass any other command like the below examples then they are working fine.

 

Working bash cmd:

bash --version

java --version 

 

Can anyone please help me to understand what I am doing wrong?

 

Please note that my E2E test needed more than one bash command to run so I can't use '.sh' option because those commands needed to run in different intervals. 

 

Note: After installing ReadyAPI in my Mac machine, I have not added any additional files to the package folder (bin or ext). I hope that is not an issue.  

 

Please advise if you have anything suggestion for me to try?

Thanks

Please provide the absolute path of the "aws-azure-login" command in the blow
def process = "aws-azure-login".execute()

Re: Running bash command in ReadyAPI groovy steps

@sam2009 most likely error is your command line. you can paste your command line here if no concern or you can try a simple command to try. for example:  def cmd = "ls -la".execute()

 

// Here is an example (on windows) to call command (or shell)
// you can check it with zsh / bash command on your Mac

try {
    def cmd = "cmd /c cd /d \"${toolDir}\" & tool.exe \"${outputDir}\" \"${logDir}\" " 
    log.info(cmd)
    def output = cmd.execute()
    def out = new StringBuffer()
    def err = new StringBuffer()
    output.waitForProcessOutput(out, err)
    if (output.exitValue()) {
	log.error(err)
    } else {
	log.info(out)
    }
} catch(Exception e) {
    testRunner.fail("Cancelled!!! => $e")
}
