    Posted 29 days ago
    Hi All,

    Greetings for the day!

    I always face this question.
    I have a web-service simulated which has couple of transactions.
    And in future if i get couple of new request/response pairs and if i have to update the old service with couple of new transactions, what can be done except copying the new transactions for new service to old service.

    Could you please suggest.

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Girija K.

    Hi,

     

    Are you talking portal or workstation?

     

    For workstation; once you processed the new req-rsp pairs into a new VSI (you can if you want only create a VSI using the wizard, no need to also create a new VSM) then you can merge that new VSI into your old VSI.

     

    For portal I believe you can upload additional request response pairs into an existing virtual service (but not sure about that, needs to be confirmed by someone else)

     

    Cheers,

    Danny

    Yes Danny, this can be done from Portal as well. We have the ability to augment a virtual service by importing RR pairs from Manage virtual services section.

    In the workstation "create new VS Image" you can select an existing VSI and select "merge into". Is that not what you are looking for?

    For SV 10.5, we have an API call that will let you Update an existing VS.

    We recommend merging similar transactions into the same VSI and you may or may not need to change the VSM based on what DPH's you are using.

    For example, if you are using Web Services Soap, then you don't need to modify anythng and you can use the existing VSM.

    If you are using REST DPH, Generic XML Payload Parser, Request Data Manager then you might need to modify the DPH's based on the new transactions.
    For example, in REST DPH, you need add the URI rules for the new transactions.

    Yes , in Portal you can import new transactions to existing VSI. https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/continuous-testing/devtest-solutions/10-5/using/using-service-virtualization/using-devtest-portal-with-service-virtualization/edit-virtual-services/update-a-virtual-service-manually/import-request-response-pairs.html

    Hi Girija,

    I have done it using 10.5 APIs, it works fine and a quite straight forward process.

    @Girija Kotturu you are probably aware of the fact that SV 10.1 is no longer supported and has been out of support for quite some time now. 

    Any concerns upgrading to the latest 10.5?

    Thanks,
