E-PTF: Persistent Variables Getting Deleted

(Doc ID 2408590.1)

Last updated on JUNE 19, 2018

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.56 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 8.56 version, PeopleTools Test Framework (PTF)

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
PTF -Persistent Variables getting wiped out

When run PTF tests concurrently it wipes out the persistent variable table. Tests aren't using the same variable names.  Persistent Variable execution option is set to "By Execution Option Name"

Happens with individual test scripts and shell scripts. The individual scripts are all marked so the variable action is read/write, however not every shell script that holds these test scripts has the variable
action set to read/write as well. When the shell script variable action is set to none but the test scripts within that shell script are set to read/write on the variable action, then it wipes out the persistent
variable table.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
When PTF is being run with two different users, they can run their tests without clearing out the persistent variable table.
