Hi Angie, What is for you the best way to manage test automation data? Do you think that manage your test data in files, databases or API are good options?

All are valid. My favorite strategy is to create and delete the data I need within the test itself via APIs.

Check out Paul Merrill's article on Test Data Strategies.

Angie Jones Thanks a lot!

I like the approach of create and delete the data, but in the company where I work, everyone wants to run the tests with their custom data. How do you share your automated tests and their data for technical and non thecnincal people can run the tests?

Any Advice?
