  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When running a stub that contains a Lookup Test Data action the
    look-up sometimes fails to find the data.
    This results in incorrect flow within the stub.
    No errors are logged by the stub.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a CSV file-based test data set with a unique key
    2. Create a stub and add the Lookup Test Data step to use this
    data set.
    3. Use a tagged value from the incoming message to look-up the
    test data row
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The stub finds the data when the key is in the data.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    Occasionally the data cannot be found and test execution goes
    down the wrong path.
