Description

When generating output for an EDI Project, one or all of the following can be referenced within the Output File Name:

  • Attribute
  • Test Data Case Set Name
  • Test Data Category Name
  • Test Data Case Name


When a Project or Project Version is created, it will automatically have an EDI Config file, which can be used to configure the Output File Name information. You can modify the EDI Config file from the Configuration Management Tab within the Project Dashboard.

This article will show how to access the Configuration Management Tab and edit the EDI Config file to include these items within the Output File Name for an EDI Project.


How to Access the EDI Configuration for a Project (or Project Version)

  •  Select the EDI Project within the Project Dashboard.


  • Next, select the Configuration Management tab within the Management Pane.


  • Click the Edit (Pencil) icon for the EDI Configuration to reference one or more items.


  • Any referenced item will need to be added before the Constant defined as ".txt". Click the Delete button for this output file format item.


  • Next, click Add to add another line to the Output File Name Format.


    Note: Remember to add the Constant defined as ".txt" back after adding all referenced items. 


Referencing an Attribute

  • Select Attribute within the drop-down menu.


  • Double click on the text field to select an Attribute to reference.


  • Select a Domain on the left to view its Attributes on the right of the dialog window. You can also use the Filter field to filter the available Domains.

  • Click the Plus (+) to select an Attribute.


  • Add the Constant ".txt" to the configuration and then click the Save button.


Referencing a Test Data Case Set Name

Note: The steps for accessing the configuration and adding an item to the Output File Name Format are identical to referencing an Attribute in the configuration. 

  • Select the Test Data Case Set option within the drop-down menu.

  • Add the Constant ".txt" back to the format.

  • Click the Save button.




  • After selecting the Test Data Case Set option in the Configuration file, the Test Data Case Set Name is automatically selected from the Test Data Case Set you are running.

    Example: The "genrocket" command below is ran:

    genrocket -tdc EDI834KHGF.gtdc:Compatibility.memberActivation -r EDIScenarioChainSet1.grs


    Output Name Generated: EDIOutput-1-EDI834KHGF-.txt 



Reference Test Data Category Name

Note: The steps for accessing the configuration and adding an item to the Output File Name Format are identical to referencing an Attribute in the configuration. 

  • Select the Test Data Category option within the drop-down menu.

  • Add the Constant ".txt" back to the format.

  • Click the Save button.


  • After selecting the Test Data Category option in the Configuration file, the Test Data Category Name is automatically selected from the Test Data Category you are running.

    Example:  The "genrocket" command below is ran:

    genrocket -tdc EDI834KHGF.gtdc:Compatibility.memberActivation -r EDIScenarioChainSet1.grs


    Output Name Generated: EDIOutput-1-Compatibility-.txt 


Referencing a Test Data Case Name

Note: The steps for accessing the configuration and adding an item to the Output File Name Format are identical to referencing an Attribute in the configuration. 

  • Select the Test Data Case option within the drop-down menu.

  • Add the Constant ".txt" back to the format.

  • Click the Save button.



  • After selecting the Test Data Case option in the Configuration file, the Test Data Case Name will be automatically picked from the Test Data Case you are running.

    Example: The "genrocket" command below is ran:

    genrocket -tdc EDI834KHGF.gtdc:Compatibility.memberActivation -r EDIScenarioChainSet1.grs
    OutputName


    Output Name Generated: EDIOutput-1-memberActivation-.txt 

Referencing All Items within the Output File Name

The configuration will appear similar to what is shown below when all four items are referenced: 




Example: The "genrocket" command below is ran:


genrocket -tdc EDI834KHGF.gtdc:Compatibility.memberActivation -r EDIScenarioChainSet1.grs


Output Name Generated: EDIOutput-1-EDI834KHGF-Compatibility-memberActivation-Q04-.txt
