STAND_IN, Live invocation if response exists

  • 1.  STAND_IN, Live invocation if response exists

    Hi All,

     

    I have to create a VS with one operation /myOpe?param=value

     

    For one value, I have to use the response stored in the VSI.

    For others values, I want to use "Live invocation" step.

     

    To do this, I have used a DPF "Request Data Copier" and a scripted assertion in order to check param value, and route either to "VS Image Response Selection" or to "Live Invocation".

     

    Is there a best way to do it ? 

     

    I was looking for a simplest way like Ignore Meta Response in Virtual Services but now it just an idea.

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Benoit,

     

    One limitation of the concept of "execution modes" is that Live vs. Virtual can't be natively selected based on the virtual response selected.

     

    So, I think what you're doing is the best approach.  The request data copier might not be necessary (since you have to write a script anyway), but you're going down the best path.

     

    This is precisely how I've solved it at a number of customers, so it seems making it native to the product is a reasonable feature request.
