Adding a keystore/groovy script to single request through Java

Hi all, 

I have a testsituation in which I want to have requests with and without the use of a keystore in a single testcase. I'm generating soapuiprojects through the Java package com.eviware.soapui.


I found a way to add a certificate in java using this code;


However, this adds the credentials to the whole project (logically), and therefore isn't usefull to me.


In the ReadyAPI user interface I can add credentials to a single request (with a request property), and a way to do this using the library would help me most!


An other option would be adding a groovy script to a testcase, and perform all the teststeps with a certificate after running this script. I did this in the user interface with this groovy script;

import com.eviware.soapui.settings.SSLSettings
import com.eviware.soapui.SoapUI

SoapUI.settings.setString( SSLSettings.KEYSTORE, "pathToKeyStore" )
SoapUI.settings.setString( SSLSettings.KEYSTORE_PASSWORD, "xxxxxxx" )


However, I do not know how to add this groovy script to a testcase using the package in Java Code. So any help with this would be appriaciated as well!


Thanks in advance!


  • Try writing the above code inside TestCase level TearDown script. Hope it helps.

      Hello casp8 


      First you need to add a keystore to your project, you can do this with the following code:


      DefaultWssContainer wssContainer = wsdlOperation.getProject().getWssContainer();
      wssContainer.addCrypto([KEYSTORE_PATH] + [certificateName],[password], CryptoType.KEYSTORE);


      With this way you can add multiple certificates to your keystore.

      After this you can select for every teststep a different keystore.

      I use the following code therefore:


      public static void addCertificateToTeststep(WsdlTestRequestStep testStep, String certificateName){
