Allow variables to be used in Connection field

Enabling a variable value to point to a connection, would allow easier development of modularity in templates and tests.

 

The use case I have involves multiple eDirectory connectors with in a single system. A variable change to the connection name in a common template would allow a single template to be used for similar tests in each of the different eDirectory trees.

 

Currently, the only way to achieve this easy reuse of templates/tests is variabilize each of the unique values in a connection - Host, Port, User and Password.

 

The current system requires the creation of a separate template/test for each connection that may be similar. The actual connection name being the only point of difference in each template/test..

 

(Note: combine this with variable Indirection would be even better)
