How do I use the Data Driven functionality to login multiple users to my browser based application?

How do I use the Data Driven functionality to login multiple users to my browser based application?

Firstly do not use a Default Base State, or an appstate for the testcase you are going to data drive. Instead launch the browser inside the testcase using Browser.Invoke(), and navigate to the page that requires you to login.

Record the actions necessary to login once, and then close the browser at the end of the testcase.

Use a data-driven testcase to replace the string values (see online Help Topic Using the Data Driven Workflow for further information) for username and password to be those from your database (e.g. Excel).

Example Code

[-] testcase DD_Test1 (REC_DATALIST_DD_Test1 rData) appstate none [ ] Browser.Invoke() [ ] Browser.LoadPage("www.demo.com") [ ] BrowserHomePage.SetActive( ) [ ] LoginWindow.SetActive () [ ] LoginWindow.UserName.SetText (rData.recSheet1_.Username) [ ] LoginWindow.Password.SetText (rData.recSheet1_.Password) [ ] // Place main code here [ ] [ ] [ ] // Close the browser for next iteration [ ] Browser.close()
