Parameter Overriding is a feature in Scenario steps definition, where the user can supply a fixed value to one of the Action’s Parameters. By default, Action Parameter values are supplied from the associated data table in the Scenario, allowing variable iteration based testing. However, if the value of a particular Action Parameter is fixed and does not need to vary for each iteration, it can be overridden at the Scenario step level.
Following types of overriding are possible:
- Runtime Parameter: Fixes the parameter value to the user supplied runtime parameter
- Global Parameter: Assigns value of a Global Parameter to the Action Parameter
- Link with Previous Step’s Parameter: Links this parameter to one of the earlier step’s parameters.
- Fixed literal value: Assigns a fixed literal value, including a <blank> value
