Adding Test Data

What is Test Data ?

Sofy’s test data capability enables QA teams to externalize test data variables so they can be reused across test cases.

Historically, testers have all too often resorted to scraps of paper or Excel files to store usernames, passwords, and test data specific parameters.

Fortunately, test data in Sofy makes it easy to centralize this data for creators to define such stateful data and share them with testers when they are executing the test. It is also serves the same purpose while creating no-code automated test cases using Sofy and during playback.
