Enable a Test Data Model for Testers

Testers can access only those test data models that are enabled for them. TDEs can decide whether to display a test data model to testers. If enabled for display, a test data model is displayed as a self-service form to testers in the Self-Service Catalog section of the Portal. Testers can start consuming the test data model (as a form) to find and reserve the data. They prepare the filter criteria by using all the required attributes that a TDE has added to the test data model.
