How to get particular data from response to use in db?

I wat to parameterize a in db value which is generated in response.. How to do this one?

For example I am creating a customer ID through soap client and I want to check whether that customer ID is inserted into DB or not??

How to do parameterization for above scenario and also I want to write a DB result (out put) in separate file ... Could you please tell me the procedure??

    You can use a DB Tool to query your database to verify the customer ID was inserted. The DB Tool also allows you to capture the results of the SQL query in XML format - can you save that to file by attaching a Write File Tool to the DB Tool.

    Ya that I tried. I want to parameterize the consumer ID in the SQL query .

    For example select * from xyztable where consumerID = ' generated ConsumerID'..

    In that place of consumer ID the Id should populate automatically, how to paramerize the query for above scenario?

    Hi sunil_subramanian,

    you have a few examples about parametrization of DB Tool in SOAtest user manual/ help system. See "SQL Query Tab"
    Here is a few examples:
    select * from xyztable where consumerID = '${ generated_ConsumerID_from_Data-Source}'


    select * from xyztable where consumerID = ${<Data Source Name>: <Column Name>}

    note a space between : and <

    select * from xyztable where consumerID = ${<Data Source Column Name mapped to Selected Element>}

    To add to @Ireneusz Szmigiel comment:
    Please note the ${ var_name } notation that he uses to reference his variable: a dollar sign with the variable's name wrapped in curly braces. This is how the tool will look up the column/variable in the specified datasource during runtime!

    If I'm generating 10 consumer Id's using parameterization, can I get the db results for all 10 consumer Id's at a single run of db tool??

    Yes. Try doing a simple query and let us know if you have any other questions :)

    I have tried below query but in transport layer in request tab its populating as null.

    I have set it as Fixed one and used below query

    Select * from xyztable where consumerId = '${identifier}';

    In that identifier is the tag name where the consumer ID is populate

    It sounds like the variable name that you are using has not been populated with the correct value. Are you using a valid variable name that comes either from a data source, from a data bank variable, or from a test variable?

    I'm using from data bank variable

  • jakubiakjakubiak Posts: 730 admin

    So it implies that your data bank did not run, or there was an error running the data bank that caused the variable to not be populated, or the value it is extracted is actually "null".
