Applies to ReadyAPI 3.10, last modified on October 07, 2021

To get the database data, you need to prepare the query. You can write it manually, or use a Query Builder Wizard . For purposes of this tutorial, use the latter.

You can access the Query Builder in the data source test step window, below the SQL Query box.

  1. Click Use a wizard.
