From
Test Data Manager
4.9 on, you can activate the product in one of the following two ways:
  • Broadcom Portfolio License Agreement (PLA)
    This license gives you access to all Continous Delivery products. You are charged by usage of the products.
    Under the terms of the Broadcom PLA, it is mandatory to send telemetry data for your product usage. For more information, see Configure Telemetry.
  • Standard TDM License
    The standard license is a stand-alone license for the
    Test Data Manager
    product only. Telemetry is optional.
This page contains information on the following topics:
Activate TDM and complete Telemetry Configuration
When you activate TDM, you also need to provide details for the storage of telemetry. If you use TDM under the terms of a PLA, TDM sends this telemetry information to Broadcom.
If you use TDM under the terms of a Broadcom Portfolio Licensing Agreement (PLA), this telemetry information is necessary for TDM to function.
If you do not use TDM under the terms of a PLA, TDM stores your telemetry information for your reference, but does not send it to Broadcom.
Broadcom Portfolio License Agreement
You can activate the software with details of your Broadcom Portfolio License Agreement (PLA).
First time Activation
When you log into CA TDM Portal as an Administrator for the first time, TDM prompts you to activate the software. This procedure is specific to activation under the terms of a Broadcom PLA.
Follow these steps:
  1. Launch
    Test Data Manager
    Portal.
  2. Log in to CA TDM Portal with your Administrator username and password.
    If you attempt to log in with a standard username and password and your CA TDM license is invalid, the page reloads with an error message to inform you that the license is invalid.
    The CA TDM Portal home page opens, with the
    Activate Product
    dialog active.
  3. On the
    Licensing Model
    page, select
    Yes
    to the question "Is this install or upgrade related to new or additional planned usage under a Portfolio License Agreement?".
  4. Click
    Next

      The last part of your company's e-mail address (e.g.
      broadcom.com
      )
    • Enterprise Site ID
      This is a 4 to 9 digit number. You can find this on your License Agreement or on the CA Support Portal.
    • (Optional)
      Internal Identifier

If you applied your CA TDM license in Datamaker in a previous version, this license continues to apply until it expires.
First time Activation / Invalid License
