Data driven questions/limitations

Hi Katalon community,

I’m very new using Katalon so apologize if my questions were already asked but nevertheless I couldn’t find an answer on this forum quicly when searching.
I’m using an xls data file to automate the login of my application and get the URL and creadentials and I have questions related to this topic.

- When I modify the xls sheet, the data displayed in Katalon is not refreshed, I’m force to close the DF in Katalon and reopen it to see the change. Is this a limitation? Why not have a refresh button?
- Also, when I do a change in this DF and want to commit this change in git, Katalon does not detect this change and does not propose to commit/push it. The project was recently added to git and my data file is never updated in git. i’ve saved it in the Data Files of the project.
- Is it possible to obfuscate the password in the console and data viewer?

Thank you for your responses or hints.
David.

Refresh button via Right-Mouse-Click on Data File --> Refresh or
Left-Mouse-Click on Data File + F5

Thanks this one is solved … intuitively I was trying on the data itself
