Dear Parasoft team,

I want to know can I use below SQL query template in Data Repository? I read "Criteria Expressions with the SQL Responder" but I want to use it in columns name not in where clause part because some times my columns name change.

SELECT ${c1}, first_name, FROM Customer WHERE username=${username} and password=${password}

when I use it in columns name I faced with below issue.

No SQL Data Set records in the "db-set" Data Set match the incoming JDBC URL and SQL template.

Please refer to below images,

    Good afternoon,

    It seems that we can only parametrize the column values in the SQL template. I get the same error when I attempt to parameterize the column name.

    As a workaround, you can create duplicates of the SQL template row and replace the column name for each. See the screenshot below (Right-Click>View Image).

    Thank you Omar,

    but in real project sometimes I faced with SQL queries that has dynamic value in body for example below query and I can not parametrize it.

    Select DBM_LOCK.RELEASE('10874334875384538') from dual

    Could you contact [email protected] so that we can better help you? I don't believe this use case is currently supported because the template is not fully user-configurable. Column names are not parameterizable so contacting support will help us determine what product enhancements would be necessary to support this use case.

    There isn't much I can do to help you. Something in your environment is going wrong. The recorded strings come from the results returned by the SQL query so it's not clear if the JDBC driver is sending the badly encoded values or if the desktop is reading or writing them wrong. There isn't much I can do to help address this issue using the forums. Contacting support will enable someone to get in touch with you directly and work through the issues in your environment.
