Can lists of data be passed as parameters from SilkCentral Test Manager to SilkTest?

Can lists of data be passed as parameters from SilkCentral Test Manager to SilkTest?

Problem:

Can lists of data be passed as parameters from SilkCentral Test Manager to SilkTest?

Resolution:

It is possible to pass a LIST type parameter from SilkCentral Test Manager to SilkTest testcases. The paramater should be declared as a STRING and the values placed within curly brackets and seperated by commas.

e.g. {"one", "two", "three", "four"}.

The parameter lsList has been created for this list of values.

LIST parameter

The Test Data for the testcase is then linked to that parameter (lsList).

Linked Test Data

When the test is executed it is shown that the list has been passed correctly to the SilkTest test from SilkCentral Test Manager.

LIST OF STRING results

It is also possible to declare a LIST parameter directly into the Test Data field:

Test Data

More information on the use of parameters in SilkCentral Test Manager can be found in Can you provide me with some information on how parameters are used in SilkCentral Test Manager?
