Re: [QF-Test] Using complex variables on Test-Suite Level

Hello Bernhard,

QF-Test variables at node level are always just Strings. The only way
to store arbitrary complex values are global objects in the Jython and
Groovy script interpreters and there's no way to limit access to a
single Suite.

There's one exception: If the complex value has a String
representation like [1, 2, 3] or {'a': 1, 'b:' 2} that can be parsed
directly by Jython or Groovy, you can store it as a QF-Test variable
at suite level and expand it using $(...) syntax in a Jython script or
Eval in Groovy.

Best regards,
    Greg
