I've been using a datapool to publish data into several tables. Let's say that there are 20 different tables in my datapool.
I'm using the batch mode to execute it from command line. But I have a new requirement, I need to be able to indicate specifically which tables I'd like to use for publishing and exclude the rest of them.
Is it possible to modify some of the parameters (exclude tables, table count, etc) from the command line?
Your guidance would be very welcomed.
Thanks and best regards.
I'm sorry we missed this question, but it was not in the 'Test Data Manager' category when posted.
Do you still have this question?
I don't know if can do it directly from command line.
When you generate the batch, datamaker also generates a XML file with all configurations needed for this batch publish (publish type, source, target, etc...).
This XML also has all tables and if its included or not during the publish. The image below has an example:
You can modify this XML file to include/exclude tables, before the execution of the batch publish.
It's been very useful.
We have gone one step further with this similar principle. By creating a 'golden' folder with the scripts and then copying them into a workspace, we utilize keywords inside these tags that can be replaced before run for this type of custom run process.
1) Copy scripts into working directory
2) Run replace script to change keywords to proper settings <status>keyword</status> becomes <status>2</status>
3) Run script
The same concept is utilized to change variable definitions on the csv.
Thanks for your response.
It's been so useful. I applied this technique to my solution.
