It is possible to instantiate Test Items?


It is possible to instantiate Test Items?

Hi, I have KeywordTest with some parameters.  And I want to run maybe 800 different  configuration for this test.  So I create a script that fetch the parameters from an XML file to call the test.  It work fine.  The problem is that I have only 1 test for that.  I want to be able to have 800 test results

I want to be able to add Test Items dynamically.


-1 Full test pass will instantiate the 800 Test items

-1 fast test pass will only sample 20 configuration

What is the best approach for that?

We put large amounts of data in an Excel sheet and use DDT or DDL from there.  You can choose how many records that the loop sees, so I would either use one sheet with 800 and call the test twice, once with All Records and once with records 1 - 20, or if I wanted a different mix for the 20 records, I would make a separate sheet with just those particular records.

I'm not sure how the XML as data works, but couldn't you make a smaller one for the 20 records and just call the two separately?  Or do you need it to be a random number of choices out of the 800 every time?

The probleme with DDT is that it's only 1 test.  I need to create 800 unique test.  And I'm not sure I can use DDT since I need custom logic in my XML.
