Boolean (%BOOL) Macro

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.53, last modified on May 15, 2024

The Boolean macro is used to insert boolean data (true or false) into the strings generated by a data source using the Custom String data generator.

The macro is an analogue of the Boolean data generator.


The macro has the following syntax:




Specifies the format of the generated data. The parameter can be one of the following values:

  • true/false (default)
  • Yes/No
  • 1/0

If you specify any other value, the custom string will not be parsed.

The values are case-insensitive.


The following examples demonstrate how to use the Boolean macro:

  • %BOOL(True/False)

    Generates True or False.

  • %BOOL(1/0)

    Generates 1 or 0 and repeats the generated value 3 times in a sequence of generated custom strings.


    Generates Yes or No (the values are case-insensitive).

  • %BOOL(False/True) <— Invalid value

    This value is not supported. ReadyAPI will not parse the custom string.
