CT has built support for it. Please check this tutorial

In the nutshell, you create a folder and store your file there mytest_SUTE_data 

and you can access this files from SUITE:
Scenario = filename:join([?config(data_dir, Config), "my.json"]),

When it was just a few, I converted them to erlang terms, and used -define in .hrl files in the include directory. But that doesn't scale well nor make for easy configuration management. I'd prefer to store each json (for a particular test) in a file since those files already exist created by others for validation. Then the test could read the file, and use jsx to convert text to json for comparison within the test.
