I am attempting to create a data driven request that has default values defined as variables at the collection level. So, if the request is manually sent the default variables are used, but if the collection runner and a data file are used, the default values are overwritten and replaced with new values from the data file, like so:
Default values defined as variables at the collection level:
Sending the request uses the default values, as you’d expect.
I then created a data file with exactly the same variables represented as columns:
Again, when using the Collection runner, these variables from the data are used as expected.
My question is regarding variable scope. **If I don’t specify one or more variables in the data file and simply leave them blank, can I have these populate from the default collection variables? **
Where do collection runner variables fall in the scope hierarchy and how do they relate to variables defined in a data file?
This is what I’ve found in a post by @sivcan:
1. Global (Lowest) 2. Collection (Read-only) 3. Environment 4. Data 5. Local (Highest)
