When using a TestNG Dataprovider, the corresponding Citrus variables are only usable in the <actions> block but not in the <variables> block.


TestNG Definition

public class IT_Some_Test extends AbstractTestNGCitrusTest {

    @DataProvider(name = "someDataProvider")
    public Object[][] someDataProvider() {
        return new Object[][]{
                new Object[]{"some_value"},

    @Test(dataProvider = "someDataProvider")
    @CitrusXmlTest(name = "IT_Some_Test")
    public void test(String someVariable) {


Citrus XML Test

<testcase name="IT_Some_Test">
        <!-- At this point the TestNG parameter 'someVariable' is not set yet. The test will fail. -->
        <variable name="otherVariable" value="${someVariable}"/>

            <!-- At this point the TestNG parameter 'someVariable' is set -->
            <variable name="otherVariable" value="${someVariable}"/>


Set TestNG parameters in TestContext before any other variables are set (which may depend on TestNG parameters).
