    Hi,

     

    I need to generate an 8 digit random number every time and send it in one of the soap response element tag.. so my api takes that random and stores in the database.. because our api automation scripts use that random and fetch the database for other details.. hence this random should not be same if I am redeploying the virtual service... 

     

    So how do I handle this logic.. any regular expression way to mention inside the soap response ? or add groovy logic in VSM ? ..  I never tried logic in match script so dont know how exactly that works but quite good in writing logic in VSM.. so suggest me how to handle in VSM please.. 

     

    thank you

    The following can be run in a JSR223 step using either Beanshell or Groovy, and will return an 8 digit random number (actually a string of 8 random numbers between 0 and 9) as both the result and in a property named RAND for later use.

     

    Adapt to suit your needs.


    Random rn = new Random();

    String a = new String();

    for (i=0; i<8; i++) {
       a = a + rn.nextInt(10).toString();
    }

    testExec.setStateValue("RAND", a);

    return a;

    Hi, 

     

    As suggested by LearnNow, we have a inbuilt feature called "Random Code Generator" and it is good to use that. 

    I have used this in my project. 

     

    Thanks

    DevTest has inbuilt patterns which can generate random patterns.

     

    For a 8 digit random number, following pattern can be used OOB.

     

    {{fl_randomN=[::DDDDDDDD]}}

     

    String Patterns - DevTest Solutions - 10.2 - CA Technologies Documentation  has a video which has more details for custom pattern creation.
