I need to extract value of datasource column using Javascript and combine it with other values. I see some examples of Jython in the forum. Can't we achieve this using Javascript in SOATest?

    function doSomething(input, context) {
       someValue = context.getValue("dataSourceName", "columnName")
    }

    Thanks, that worked for a datasource, but not working for a Generated Data Source like a value from Text Data Bank. I need to concatenate values from data source and random generated value - from text data bank

    Use "Generated Data Source" for the data source name, the first argument in that method call. The second argument would be the data bank column name.
