You have successfully run demo transactions, it is time to make your own test cases.
In order to obtain this, you need to alter test data in Excel, save your new test data, export for the simulator, restart simulator with new test cases.
Altering or creating test cases with the neaPay ISO8583 simulator is really easy.
You will just edit an excel file. See below how.
Go to the deployment folder, go inside the Acquirer instance(ACQ_client), and then inside folder test_data (E.g. C:/neaPaySimulator/ACQ_client).
Open Excel file ISO8583_TestCases_v3.5.xlsm.
Go to sheet ISO8583_Acquirer. We will refer to this as the Acquirer Sheet from now on. This defines the Acquirer test cases.
Copy a line (select line, Ctrl c) and insert it below (Ctrl +). You now have two identical lines. We will edit the second one.
Edit column R to change the Amount to 1000 in field DE04 (Data Element 04)
Change column B to a number that is not already present in the other values on column R. We ususally increment the number.
The pair Scenario+NR (columns A+B) must be unique, this is how the simulator searches the transactions.
Edit Column D, Description and append or replace it with some text of your choosing (e.g Custom Transaction).
Press the "Save Test Data CSV" button inside the sheet, next to the neaPay logo.
It will ask you about saving and overwriting "ISO8583_Acquirer.csv"
Then it will ask about saving and overwriting "ISO8583_TestCases_v3.5.xlsm"
Close the Excel file (optional). Close the Acquirer simulator. The server can keep running.
Open and Start again the Acquirer simulator, check that it has connected to the server again.
When the Transactions List window opens, check that your new transaction is available in the list.
Select your configured transaction and click the Send button.
Check the Acquirer Console for the text Test case: and check that after that, the description you entered earlier is present.
Congratulations! You have successfully configured your first transaction!
