Encode Attachments

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.7, last modified on April 08, 2021

ReadyAPI allows you to use Groovy scripts to work with attachments – for example, extract data from text files, change their encoding, and so on.

This topic describes how to use a Groovy script to encode attachments.

Where to use

There are several ways to run this script:


The following code demonstrates how to encode the specific file with base64 in ReadyAPI:


// Replace the file path with the one you need

// Get the file content
def inputFile = new File("C:\\Work\\MyFile.txt").getText('UTF-8')

// Encode the file content
String encoded = inputFile.bytes.encodeBase64().toString()

// Output results
log.info encoded // with the Groovy Script test step, you can use “return encoded”
