creating excel datasource using Java in Parasoft Maven Jumpstart project


When mapping the datasource path to the setId method in FileLocation class.
FileLocation location=new FileLocation();

It throws below error :smile:
ErrorResponse [status=404, message=Invalid payload: Specified value '${project_loc:PBAPO}/Sample2.xls' for property [] could not be found, please fix the []., moreInfoUrl=http://localhost:9080/soavirt/api]

In FileLocation class it does not allow set external method.

public class FileLocation {

protected String id;
protected String external;

 * Gets the value of the id property.
 * @return
 *     possible object is
 *     {@link String }
public String getId() {
    return id;

    Hi, does the project and file identified by that location id exist on the server? Could you provide a sample JSON payload of what you are trying to send? If you navigate in a browser to "http://localhost:9080/soavirt/api" you will find a page that will let you test sending messages to the api resources.
