YAML Plugin

The plugin provides a set of actions for validation of YAML data.

Installation

  1. Copy the below line to dependencies section of the project build.gradle file

    Please make sure to use the same version for all VIVIDUS dependencies.
    Example 1. build.gradle
    implementation(group: 'org.vividus', name: 'vividus-plugin-yaml', version: '0.6.11-SNAPSHOT')
  2. If the project was imported to the IDE before adding new dependency, re-generate the configuration files for the used IDE and then refresh the project in the used IDE.

Steps

The steps syntax uses internal (VIVIDUS-only) term:

  • "YAML element value" or "value of YAML element" - scalar values like string, integer, float, boolean (true or false) and null.

Save YAML element value from input

Saves a value of YAML element found in the given YAML into the variable with the specified name and scope.

When I save YAML element value from `$yaml` by YAML path `$yamlPath` to $scopes variable `$variableName`
Example 2. Validate the title of the second book
When I save YAML element value from `${response}` by YAML path `store.book[1].title` to scenario variable `title-of-second-book`
Then `${title-of-second-book}` is equal to `Sword of Honour`
