GitHub: Use a File as a Datasource

Legacy Documentation
You're viewing legacy documentation for API Fortress (deployed via an on-premises container). To view documentation for the new SaaS version of API Fortress now known as Sauce Labs API Testing and Monitoring (with Sauce Connect tunnels) see API Testing on the Sauce Labs Cloud.

This Github component is meant to simplify the process of retrieving a file from Github and use it as a data source. Some examples of files to use would be CSV or JSON files.

Here is a tutorial on how to use it as part of a test.

The GitHub component has the following fields:

  • Account is your GitHub username
  • Repository is the name of the repository that your data file is pushed to.
  • Branch is the repository branch that the desired version of the data file is in.
  • Token is the token described above, generated in the GitHub platform.
  • Variable is the variable that the payload will be stored under.
  • Path is the name of the file in the repository.
  • Mode is the filetype of the file in the repository.
