Issue/Introduction

 

The Swagger UI of the Payload didn't work for me. It's not very clear on what is required. I found that if I use the JSON I found in the UI (using developer tools in Chrome Browser) worked for the file. What I don't get is why there is such a mismatch of json? Second in the step created in Javelin, Why do I need to both use a file and the project name and version name arguments??????

 

 

Environment

Release : 4.9

Component : CA Test Data Manager - Javelin

Resolution

json file should contain project name and version.
However you can override this name and version using the project name and version entries in the UI.
 
For example json file has 
name: hello
version: world
 
if you change your mind and want a different name and version then you can use the project name and version name entries without having to update the json file.
