We are using DevTest 9.1 Service Virtualization. We have a need to use a spread sheet or other data file to fill in response values to which are not contained in the .vsi. At this time the DevTest portal has not been made available to our development team. This rules out the use of using a proper Data Driven Virtual Service for now. We are looking for a short term solution until the data driven option is available.
In the workstation within the .vsm add a one time step before the http listener to load excel data, then look up a store the response as a variable, reference the variable on your response before your response is returned. This will achieve ddvs. You can also do so in the Match Script section. If ourse the portal is easier to achieve this but the alternative is to code it yourself vs the easy point and click from the pivotal ddvs
Is the loading of excel data step a customized extension?
