Set custom names in Data Generator
we are using the DataSource Test Step as a DataGenerator, to create random names (Property Type: Custom String, Value: %NAME(Any, FirstName)).
Is it possible to somehow add names or replace the names generated?
Thanks in advance,
I don't think so using this object in ReadyAPI. I think they've hardcoded those random names. That's the meaning of random.
But why aren't those names not good enough please? Why should they be different to your oppinion? Can't you use these? or aren't there enough names?
the names are just fine and but we would like to generate some e.g. with Greek characters.
If they are hard-coded then it is not possible, for sure. Is there any other object we can use @AAB ?
You could for example create a textfile with those strange characters and use this as datasource? 😉
Hello again AAB,
I was trying to avoid using an external source but as it seems, its the only way to go (except from creating a custom randomizer using Groovy)
Thank you for helping.
Well, look what the latest version of ReadyAPI is giving us:
maybe you can use this?
