how to read values from json file as we can from Excel or .txt file
I am trying to read the values from .json file format by using Data Source Step. By it says file format unsupported.
I am successfully able to read values using Excel and Text file. Is it possible to read values from .json file format.
Thanks a lot in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
When creating the datasource, you have noted that whilst JSON is an option, there is no way to read in from files. So, do that.
Firstly, create a Groovy step. In the Step return the contents of the JSON file.
def file1 = new File('C:/temp/temp.json'); return file1.text;
If you run this step on its own, you should get a pop-up that shows the contents of the file. If you don't check the path and file name.
Then, create your data source step. Select JSON from the DataSource dropdown. Then, from the 'Source Step' dropdown, select the Groovy step created earlier. From the Source Property dropdown, select 'Result'.
From here, you just need to define the properties of the JSON object.
I needed this too bur I get an error message in ReadyAPI version 2.6.0:
What did I do wrong please? or what should I do?
If I run the groovy script I indeed have an overview of my json file.
Thanks in advance.
Indeed, my architect just explained that our Mock server and Swagger also cry their eyes out because of number starting with zero. So we will make those numbers as string in the file. You think that could solve my problem?
@ChrisA's suggestion looks good. Try using it.
Also, I suggest that you submit a feature request to implement this feature in ReadyAPI:
If the suggestion gets many votes, our Product Team will consider implementing it.
