The Directory data source iterates through the files within the specified directory and puts the files' content to the first property specified in the Properties panel.
The data source assigns data to the first property in the list. Other properties will be blank, except for
fileName (see below).
You can only use this data source in the SoapUI DataSource test step. It is not available in ServiceV.
The directory to scan for files.
Specifies a wildcard expression to filter files to read. For example, if you specify
*.xml, the data source reads only XML files.
Specifies the encoding used to read the files. By default, ReadyAPI uses the ASCII character encoding.
|Note:||You can use property expansions to insert values into the above-mentioned fields.|
To get file names, create the
fileName property in the data source. On each iteration, this property will store the name of the file the data source is reading.
Do not use
fileName as the first property of the data source, since it will overwrite the default assignment rules, and the files’ contents will not be available.
