findTestData method is throwing an exception java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot find test data with id File is unsupported


#1

I am trying to run a Test Suite Collection from VSTS Pipeline.
The collection has a single test suite and the test suite has a single test case.

In the test case, I am using a data file that is pointing to a xlsx file.
The data source and the actual excel file are both in the Data Files folder in the Katalon Project.

When I am executing the test suite collection from VSTS, using the the Katalon Test Executor plugin, I get an exception java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot find test data with id because (of) ‘java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: File is unsupported: D:a1sV1PayrollData FilesNewClientWizard.xlsx’

I have tried to use file with .xls without any success.

When I used a csv file which is located in the same directory , my test suite ran successfully.

My project is in a git repository in VSTS.

Can someone please help me understand why the xlsx file didn’t work?
