About this task

When you create a dataset in HCL OneTest Server, it always creates 1 Row, 2 Column (1R X 2C) dataset. Later, you can edit the dataset by adding some rows and columns that you want, to add the data in it.

  2. Enter your user name and password, and then click Login.
  3. Open your project from the HCL OneTest Server UI.
  4. Go to the Datasets page, and then click Create dataset.
  5. Enter a name for the dataset in the Asset name field, and then select the place where you want to save the dataset in the Location drop-down list.
  6. Click Create.
    The new dataset opens in a CSV Editor in a web browser. The dataset created is listed on the Datasets page.


You have created a dataset in your project.
