Hi Mohammed,

If you mean if there is a Gherkin magic word to import test data into the
test, the answer is no.
What I would recommend is to use a table setup such as the Scenario
Outline, which can be found here:
https://docs.cucumber.io/gherkin/reference/

Gr,
Koen

No it's not - you'll find numerous threads bout it if you search the forum.

We might add a Gherkin pre-processor one day, that would let include data
from external sources.

I have created a maven plugin as pre-processor, which imports csv data in
feature files. It also supports environment specific test data. All details
you can find in Readme.md at

Hi Wolfgang,
I'm very interested in your pre-processor. Can you put a link to an
executable jar so I can use it?

Ps : CucumberFeaturesReplacer.replaceStringInFeature(File feature, File
fOutFile, File csvDir) is missing out.close() after
out.println(replacedContent). Doesn't write contents to file without
close() or flush()
