Follow these easy steps to add a card. Repeat the steps or use some Excel skills to add multiple cards.
Open the test cases sheet ISO8583_TestCases_vx.x.xlsm, located in the test_data folder.
Open the sheet named ISO8583_card.
You will notice several rows of dummy cards with all card details.
For simplicity, Copy any row and paste on the first empty row to make a duplicate of an existing card.
Modify/ Edit the rows CardID, PAN, sequence number and all the relevant columns for you.
Make sure the Card ID is unique (first column), otherwise the search for cards will always get the first occurrence.
Set a description that is relevant for the future understanding of the cards usage (e.g: RealCard, MasterCard for test, Visa for regression).
Repeat the steps above as many times as you need to add all the records.
IMPORTANT! SAVE your cards by pressing the "Save Test Data CSV" button next to the neaPay logo inside the spreadsheet! See Image below!
Click YES to overwrite the CSV files on the disk!
These csv files will have the new information.
For Cards, the csv file is called ISO8583_Card.csv
It is reccomended, for maintenance purposes, to NOT edit the CSV files directly. They are generated by the spreadsheet.
Check the csv files on the disk that they have changed and the date is new.
The simulator will automatically look for cards in file ISO8583_Card.csv
The ISO8583 simulator requires this file to populate transaction data.
Importing data from test environments is just as easy! We assume you cannot simply connect Excel to the SQL database, but you need to work this manually.
