When you have a project with a test case, you can add a data source.

Your test case contains one REST Request test step that will use a data source. To add a data source:

  1. Click on the test case toolbar.

    ReadyAPI: Adding the data source test step

    Click the image to enlarge it.

  2. Enter a name for the data source.

    ReadyAPI: Naming the data source
    Note: Data sources are more efficient when you use them with a loop. ReadyAPI will suggest that you add a data source loop to your test case. Usually, you will do that right away, but in this tutorial, we will add a loop later.

  5. Now you need to specify the data source type. To do that, open the Data Source Type drop-down list.

  6. Select Grid.
