Flow data-driven variables

If there is a Data-driven variables section on the Flow Details page, it means that the flow uses "flow data-driven variables." These are variables that have their value set from a different source, such as a prior test step, an environment variable, or a DataTable scenario.


Data-driven variables section on the Flow Details page

Mabl stores a default value for the variable with the flow. If the same flow is used in a different test where the variable hasn't been defined, the flow uses the default value for this variable. For this reason, it is important to construct your tests such that a flow data-driven variable's value is set correctly for the context the flow is used in.

Updating flow data-driven variables

If you need to update the default value for a flow data-driven variable, you can take the following steps:

  1. Go to Tests > Flows
  2. Select the flow you would like to modify
  3. Click on the Edit variables button
  4. Update the default values
  5. Click Save to confirm your changes
