Multiple DataSources For a Single Test
Multiple Data Sources For a Single Test would allow a us to set a list of users in a single csv, a list of customers in anotehrs and a list of products in a third then combine them with all possible iterations over the set for exhaustive testing. Currently we have to nest test cases to get this functionality which junks up the test suite.
Thank you for your input.
We have talked about this in the past before. The problem with multiple data sources for one test case is actually the way the iterations work and how the iterations over the test case should be handled. This could potentially get very confusing.
However, we will evaluate if there is a solution that will both make sense and won’t be too confusing with the way iterations work with data connectors.

For a start, it would already be helpful to have a "static" and an "iteration" datasource. The values in the (one-line) static datasource are valid in each iteration cycle. This would avoid repeating constant values in each line of the datasource table.

This would be very useful and make test cases a lot easier to read - it would remove the need to add smart folders to introduce datasets.
The same functionality applied to smart folders would also be useful.
This would be very helpful.
It could be very helpful to have:
Multiple data source files input for test cases.
I think at the moment, each test case can have only one data source.
When the test system is big, organization of test cases will be more easy with multi data source installed of just one data source.
