Describe environment test

The description of a test environment must be respect the following rules. This type of init must be used with the reusable test /Snippets/Do/03_Initialize.tux

Node declaration SAMPLE_NODE:

       "COMMON": {
               "HOSTNAME": "extensiveautomation"
       "INSTANCES": {
               "SSH": {
                       "ADMIN": {

                                       "name": "agent.ssh01"

Data test declaration SAMPLE_DATASET_AUTH:

                "login":         "admin",
                "password":      ""

Environment declaration SAMPLE_ENVIRONMENT:

       "PLATFORM": {
               "CLUSTER": [
                       { "NODE": "Common:SAMPLE_NODE" }
       "DATASET": [
               { "AUTH": "Common:SAMPLE_DATASET_AUTH" }

Import/export variables

It’s possible to export or import in mass the variables from REST API in CSV format
