Automated Testing: Test Import file

Posted on by 525

I want to write automated test for the following scenario:
- In one of the custom pages, there is action 'Import File'. When the action is invoked, we uplodad an excel file which is then parsed and data is saved.
How can I test this functionality?
Thanks in anticiapation!

    Figured it out myself:

    When you have to test any functionality that involves uploading a file, upon the test execution, the test tool prompts us to upload the file against which we need to test the functionality. So, no Handler functions are required and file should be uploaded in run time(These were two main confusions I had when I was looking for a solution).

    We currently do not have dedicated Dev support via the Dynamics 365 Business Central forums which is probably the reason for the lack of responses, but I wanted to provide you some additional resources to assist.  If you need assistance with debugging or coding I would recommend discussing this on one of our communities.

    I will open this up to the community in case they have something to add.
