Updating test data

You can edit existing test data with the Test Data editor.

About this task

You can edit existing test data by uploading a new comma separated values (CSV) file, or by opening and modifying the current CSV file. If your test data is used by test scripts, you should not modify or remove columns in the CSV file. You can add and remove rows from test data that is included in your test scripts and the scripts will be automatically updated to reflect the changes to the data.


To edit test data:

  1. In the main menu, click Construction > Browse > Test Data.
  2. In the Name column, click the test data that you want to update. The Test Data editor opens.
  3. Do any of the following things:
    • To upload a new CSV file, click Browse and select the file to upload.
    • To open and modify the original CSV file, click the name of the file to open the file in an editor of your choice. Save your changes to the file and then click Browse to upload the updated file.
      Note: Make sure to upload the updated file. There is no automatic synchronization between the CSV file and the TestData after the TestData is created. So if you open and modify the CSV file you will need to save and upload the updated file.
    • To add, edit, or further define test data categories, click the Manage Test Data Categories icon ().
    • To set a test data category value, in the list next to a category type, select a value.
  4. Click Save.
