Creating a user with our DSL looks like: registrationAPI.createUser(“user”); You might expect this to create a user with the username ‘user’, but then we’d get conflicts between every test that wanted to call their user ‘user’ which would prevent tests from running safely against the same deployment of the exchange. Instead, ‘user’ is just an alias that is only meaningful while this one test is running. The DSL creates a unique username that it uses when talking to the actual system. Typically this is done by adding a postfix so the real username is still reasonably understandable e.g. user-fhoai42lfkf.Nice approach — makes sense.
