Synchronizing Data Sources

You must synchronize a data source each time it is changed or updated, if you want to make Silk Central aware of the changes. Synchronizing a data source propagates recent changes to associated tests.

To synchronize an updated data source:

  1. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  2. Click the Data Sources tab. The Data Sources page displays, listing all of the data sources that have been created for the system.
  3. Click the Synchronize icon in the Actions column that corresponds to your data source to propagate the updated file to the associated tests.
  4. A confirmation dialog box displays, asking you to confirm the synchronization. Click Yes to synchronize all tests with the updated data source, or click No to abort the synchronization.
    When you synchronize a data source, all running executions depending on this data source are aborted. Results of incomplete tests within these executions are lost.
  5. Click OK on the success message dialog box.
