Parent/Child data source relations

Relevant for: API testing only

If your test uses multiple data sources to provide data for your test step properties, you can create a hierarchy of relations between data sources that describes how to use the data sources in your test. You use data relations when you use one specific data source as the primary data source for your test but require other data sources to populate property values within the same test.

When you use data relations, you assign the primary data source to the Test Flow or selected test loop. Then, using the Define New Data Relation dialog box, you specify any necessary child data sources and map the columns of the parent data source to the columns of the child data source.

When the test runs, UFT substitutes the child data as specified.
