    As Connect:Direct is a file transfer solution, it is unclear what exactly you want to virtualize?


    In the scenario of a file transfer - file X is sent from A to B – which is your system under test? A? Or B?


    If B, then you probably don't need virtual services but test automation. Connect:Direct has  REST API and we can manipulate CD from within a DevTest .tst file and send over files (just a hypothetically statement, I have never worked with this API)


    If A, then it depends on which 'interface' is used by your system under test to manipulate Connect:Direct? If A is using the REST API to manipulate CD, then we can take CD physically out of the picture by providing a virtual CD REST API.

    Hi Nikita,

    You have to use the SFTP custom step to have the data transferred from DevTest for Connectdirect based transfer. However, you will steep need the CD nodes to be created and rules configured to get the files processed.
