File Global variables are unique within the Sequence File and for each execution, In order to share data stored in a File Global variable, you should follow these steps:
- Open your sequence file in TestStand Sequence Editor
- Select Edit»Sequence File Properties from the toolbar
- In the Properties dialog, select the All Executions Share the Same File Globals option from Sequence File Globals drop-down menu.
- Click OK to register the change.
This will prevent a copy of the File Globals from being created for each execution.
Note that this operation will raise the scope of File Globals to all executions and may result in a race condition. If you wish to share data between executions without making your File Globals prone to race conditions, consider to use queues or notifications.
