The CA Test Data Manager Portal allows you to submit the data generation requests using Generators or Self-Service Catalog. You can configure the CA TDM Portal to use either New Publish Service or Remote Publish to handle the publish requests.
You can modify the application.properties file for the following two parameters to switch between New Publish Service and Remote Publish based on the use cases. The application.properties file is typically available at
C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\conf\
.
  • tdmweb.tdmJobEngineService.useDatamakerToPublish=false|true
    Default: false
  • tdmweb.testerSelfService.useDatamakerToPublish=false|True
    Default: false
Use Cases
  1. To run all the publish requests either from Generators or from Self-Service Catalog using New Publish Service use the parameters as follows:
    • tdmweb.tdmJobEngineService.useDatamakerToPublish=false
    • tdmweb.testerSelfService.useDatamakerToPublish=false
  2. To run all the publish requests either from Generators or from Self-Service Catalog using Remote Publish use the parameters as follows:
    • tdmweb.tdmJobEngineService.useDatamakerToPublish=true
    • tdmweb.testerSelfService.useDatamakerToPublish=true/false
      Note: 
      When configured the Generators to use Remote Publish, Self-Service Catalog cannot use New Publish Service. That means the value of the parameter "tdmweb.testerSelfService.useDatamakerToPublish" is not considered. So the value can be either "true" or "false".
  3. To run the publish requests from Generators using New Publish Service and run the publish requests from Self-Service Catalog using Remote Publish use the parameters as follows:
    • tdmweb.tdmJobEngineService.useDatamakerToPublish=false
    • tdmweb.testerSelfService.useDatamakerToPublish=true
