Custom profile for Ready API or open source SOAP UI - make them use different workspaces.

Custom profile for Ready API or open source SOAP UI - make them use different workspaces.

ReadyApi and free SoapUi share the same profile file (%USERPROFILE%\soapui-settings.xml). So I often accidentally upgrade the Soap UI script created by my colleagues who don't have ReadyApi when I forget to switch workspace before closing SoapUi and openning my ReadyApi.

Is there a way to make one of the apps use different profile?

 

(Same problem as in https://community.smartbear.com/t5/Ready-API-and-SoapUI-PlugIn/Readi-API-for-open-source-Soap-UI/m-p... , but the accepted solution doesn't work.)

Hi @mhRandom

 

As you said, ReadyAPI and SoapUI open-source uses the same soapui-settings.xml file where the workspace is defined. So, there is no way to make them use different workspaces.

Hello Nastya,

I see. (I've tried to edit .vmoptions -Dsoapui.properties but it didn't help.)

 

Isn't there at least a command line option to open specific workspace? (Again, simply trying as a single argument for the soapui.exe nor soapui.bat didn't work).

@mhRandom,

If you are ok to invoke soapui / execute the tests from command line, then you can load different settings file using options available.
So, use two separate settings files which allows you to specify different workspaces inside of settings file.
For more details, refer documentation
