I've tried to use this style: https://codeception.com/docs/07-AdvancedUsage#Example-Annotation

My example test case is this:

 * @example { "groupid": "16789507", "partnerccdid": "31003704" }
public function getPartnerCcdIdWithGroupId(ApiTester $I)

When I run this using this command: php codecept.phar run -vvv I only get the following error:

[PHPUnit\Framework\Exception] Undefined variable: example

According to https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/, it's a valid JSON. I'm using it the way they explain in the official documentation, all my strings are enclosed in double quotes.

What am I missing here?

EDIT: I'm actually trying to use SOAP module and test an API. Just a thought crossed my mind.

Is this annotation style allowed with the module and API Tester? Because I can't figure out what else could possibly be wrong.

You do not pass in the $example as described in the documentation:

public function getPartnerCcdIdWithGroupId(ApiTester $I, \Codeception\Example $example)
  • :D of course. Well, I just didn't see that. Thank you.
