Data Generator

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.52, last modified on April 18, 2024

The Data Generator data source is a built-in generator of data. You can use it to generate property values of different types. This approach allows you to avoid manually creating data storages and populating them with data.

Available Generators

The type of a property depends on the generator that is used to generate the data. ReadyAPI uses 19 different data generators:
