Start test from script/cmd and pass variable


I would like to test add/modify/delete of few (say 100) users with same
tests. The fastest way to do that is set variables (ex $CN) and just run
test from script/cmd that will increment is and pass every time when
test will performed. Is there a way to pass variable to test?

Re: Start test from script/cmd and pass variable

If I understand correctly, you want to start a test from the
command-line and pass in a parameter that the test can use (a CN for
example). This is not a feature of Validator, you cannot pass any
parameters from the command-line that the test can use.

However, you can accomplish this in another way. You can write the
parameter value (like a CN) into a text file, then start the test from
the command-line. The test can then read the file using the text file
connector and set a variable with the value from the file. You can then
use this variable throughout your test.

Hopefully this helps.
