SOAtest iteration of tests in reference tst
I am busy constructing a new framework, consisting of a parent(driver) tst and multiple reference tst blocks. Both parent and reference (child) tst's have dedicated (excel) datasources. E.g. the parent DS holds the testcases and some 'switches' to conditionally use the child tst's, in which I have a DB query and Expected Result DS. With a couple of variables I am able to distinguish and match the testcase in the parent, with the expected results to be validated in the child.
All seems to work well for one testcase in the parent available, but when I add more testcases (and ditto queries/expected results), the DB queries in the child somehow gets executed TIMES the number of testcases listed in the parent tst DS.
I already have been fiddling around with the test execution options.Execution mode is set to run sequentially and Test relationship Radio button is now set to Test run as group and Multiple data source iteration has Permutation in both parent and child selected.
How can I get it work that the queries are only executed once per testcase, regardless the number of testcase listed in the parent DS.
Thanks in advance.
