Simulate calls to data page and connector rule types when unit testing (8.4)

Updated on May 3, 2021

You can now configure your test environment to use simulated data for testing connector and data page rules.

Create tests that are independent of third-party connections

If you want to test a rule that makes a call to an external database, your test is dependent on that database's availability.

To avoid this dependency, you can now configure the rules that you want to test to use simulated data, instead of making actual connections to external data sources. By simulating data, you are not dependent on any third party when running your tests.
