Issue/Introduction

 

I am looking for a built in method to read the contents of a flat file into a string from the Data Painter.  Something like @readFile(filename)@...

What is the best way to do this? 

 

 

Environment

Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution

We do not support such functionality. 


As an alternate suggestion,   we support the use of CSV file that contains values for variables. 




Variables can have:


default value

generator values

csv values

sql generated values
