Associating a datapool with a test script

You can associate a test script with a datapool to use external data to drive the application instead of using a literal value.

About this task

A datapool is a test dataset, a collection of related data records. It supplies data values to the variables in a test script during test script playback.


  1. In the Projects view, select a datapool.
  2. Right-click the selected datapool and click Associate with Script.
  3. Click the + next to the project to open the list of scripts.
  4. Click one or several test scripts to associate with the datapool that you selected.
  5. Click Finish.
    If you change the datapool associated with a script, the script may run incorrectly.
  6. If you receive a message that a script is already associated with a datapool, take one of the following steps:
    • Click Yes to change the datapool associated with the script to another datapool.
    • Click No to keep the datapool associated with the script.
