Configure Form Based Test Data Reservation Service

CA Test Data Manager (CA TDM) helps testers link the test cases with relevant data and expected results, as well as eliminate over testing of certain functionality and to prioritize tests based on criticality. CA Agile Requirements Designer (CA ARD) helps to plugging in the CA TDM to existing test management tools, such as HP Application Lifecycle Management (HPALM) and CA Agile Central.

As a Test Data Engineer, you can create a diagram in the CA ARD that represents the set of requirements as a visual flow. In every flow, there is a certain number of possible paths you can take between the Start and the End block and each path represents a test case. You can associate the ARD Flow with CA TDM projects and enable the flow for tester. 
Testers can access the ARD Flows that the TDE enabled for them.The ARD Flows are displayed as forms to testers in the Self-Service Catalog section of the Portal. Testers can then consume the ARD Flows (as a form) to find and reserve the data for their specific test cases.
The following procedures explain you how to use CA TDM and CA ARD together to define test data requirements, design the visual flows using ARD, and enabling these ARD flows to tester self service in the TDM Portal.
For more information about how testers use an ARD Flow to find and reserve the test data, see Reserve Data with Self Service Catalog Forms.
