Importing XSD or JSON files from the local file system

When you have an XSD or a JSON format file in your local file system, you can import the same files from the local file system into your HCL OneTest Data project.

Before you begin

  • You must have created a project.
  • You must have an XSD or a JSON format file in your local file system.

About this task

XSD or JSON files are in schema format. To create a schema, you can import an existing schema that is in the XSD or JSON format from your local file system.

Restriction: You cannot modify all the properties of the types in an XSD or a JSON schema.

The following table shows the list of properties supported by JSON or XSD schema:
