Hi Aarti,

To achieve this functionality you could use the Excel generic modules. Here is how you can process it step by step:

Step 1: Define the excel workbook with which you want to work

Step 2: Define the excel sheet within the workbook with which you want to work

Step 3: Perform the buffer action

Step 4: Close the workbook

Each of these steps can be achieved using excel generic modules available for that particular action. I am attaching a subset with this reply, which you can go through. I have put together examples of testcases buffering data. Hope this explains the concept.


Note 1: The buffered data can be found under Settings > Engine > Buffer, under the specified buffer name

Note 2: I have included description for each testcase. Mouse-over the testcases to read the description, to understand what each test does

Best Regards,

Hi Rahul, 

I'm new to TOSCA, this really helps. Now that I loaded the data from my excel, how do I read each row since buffer parameter is only {B[name]} thanks.

After reading your question thoroughly I assume you goal is to use excel as a data source to parameterize test data. If that is true, go through the documentation here.

I think, what she wants to achieve is with 1 test case, read data from a excel and run it for multiple iteration.

Ex: Need to pass 100 different values for a buffer, how can we do without instantisation.
