GitHub – Use a File as a Datasource

This Github component is meant to simplify the process of retrieving a file from Github and use it as a data source. Some examples of files to use would be CSV or JSON files.

Here is a tutorial on how to use it as part of a test.

The GitHub component has the following fields:


  • Account is your GitHub username
  • Repository is the name of the repository that your data file is pushed to.
  • Branch is the repository branch that the desired version of the data file is in.
  • Token is the token described above, generated in the GitHub platform.
  • Variable is the variable that the payload will be stored under.
  • Path is the name of the file in the repository.
  • Mode is the filetype of the file in the repository.
