vutil provides a REST API to read system file from the machine on which the utility is installed. If your test data is directly in JSON format, then you may read JSON file with the help of an API. Then you may consume the response in subsequent APIs as test data.

This API fetches text data from the machine on which this utility is installed.

API Endpoint:

The API format is 

GET {{vutilBaseURL}}/file

Here {{vutilBaseURL}} is the base URL of the vutil server.

and this API accepts a single query parameter "filePath" and its value is the absolute path of the file which you want to fetch from system.

How to use this API:

Assuming that vutil is running on port 4080 and vutil base URL is "http://localhost:4080".

Suppose we have a sample JSON file sample.json stored in directory path {{dataDir}}/jsons/sample.json.

Now we will try to fetch this JSON file by using the following API.

Now set the request query parameter "filePath" as follows:

And the API will produce the file content as output:
