Support DataTables in Mabl CLI

Would be great if running tests using Mabl CLI worked with DataTables as per cloud runs.

Given I'm a user using Mabl CLI
When I run a test that contains a DataTable with multiple scenarios
Then the test runs for each scenario

    This issue, along with some of our own limitations (i.e. lack of BigQuery license, etc.) has become a significant roadblock in our effort to automate smoke/certification tests. In the absence of this functionality, is there a recommendation for how we could accomplish the goal of kicking off a mabl Plan that contains one or more data table-driven tests?

    Note: We are currently looking to dockerize the execution of our mabl tests so any recommendations/workarounds would be greatly appreciated.

    If we could add a run multiplier argument AND have the option for entering an argument that targets a specific scenario in the datatable, that would be even better!

    Hey Anton. I'm upvoting this one too... The group at Smugmug would love ability to conform a single tests to run on integration, GH code checks, staging, production and deployment. If we have some tests that are datatable dependent, the devs and deployment teams wouldn't be able to run them locally.

    As far as controlling the feature, my suggestion would be to simply add a run multiplier integer argument in the CLI.

    Thanks for the response Anton. I expected it to do sequential test runs over all the scenarios.

    Thank you for the feedback! Do you envision the test running with one of the datatable scenarios or having multiple sequential test runs that iterate over the datatable scenarios?
