CBTA Test Data Management

I am working with Solution Manager 7.1 SP15 and CBTA I have just started with CBTA as I have previously created automation using UFT.

With UFT I automated the creation of test data so that I could recreate data each time we did a system refresh. The example I will use here is the creation of a Material Master with MM01 and the replication of that Material to 100+ Plants using a custom T_Code.

In UFT I ran an E2E test that created the material and passed the number to the second T_Code. I then called a spreadsheet with all the Plant IDs and ran the 100+ iterations to create that material in all Plants.

Any ideas how I can achieve this in CBTA?

Hi Jim.

You can use CBTA composite tests to be able to do E2E test. Each test configuration can pass parameters to the next ones and therefore ensure that all process is working. You can optionally assign test data container and run your test under many variants. On the other hand, you can always use loop component with other components (possibly custom) for example to load one line from your data file and then use it in your script. Both ways are acceptable and I saw them in practice.

Hope it helps

Thanks Jan,

I have some composite tests and TDCs set up already. In this particular scenario I would need to assign 2 TDCs to make this work, without customisation, and this is not possible in 7.1

It may be possible in 7.2, from what I have read, but we will see later this year.

For the time being I think customisation is the answer.

Hello Jim,

Please help me how to assign TDC to Composite Test E2E scenario in Solman 7.2 CBTA 3.0. Unfortunately i am unable to mapping the parameters from TDC to Composite Test because Composite Test parameters are not showing while assigning TDC, so unable to complete all the steps and unable to assign TDC variant.

It would be great help if you share me your experience/any screen shots/any document.

Hi Subba,

I am not using Solman 7.2 yet but I think the principle is the same. You need to import the parameters from the Composite Test into the TDC first.

In your TDC go to Edit and Import Parameters.

Then enter you Test Script name and click 'Get Parameters'

Select the required parameters and use the black arrow to transfer across.

You will then be able to edit your variants.

Best Regards
