Test Data Managerlets you reserve data for exclusive use by testers to avoid conflicts. You can manage this process in one of the following ways:
- Dynamic Test Data Reservation ServiceIn this case, you use the CA TDM Portal to create test data models that facilitate the data reservation process for testers. Defined test data models are shared with testers as forms in the Self-Service Catalog section of the Portal. These forms use the business language that testers understand, which helps testers find the right test data for their testing environments. Testers can access the applicable forms and can perform test data operations - find and reserve. Through these forms, testers get on-demand access to the exact data they need. That is, they can easily request the data they need, analyze it, and reserve it on demand.
- Form Based Test Data Reservation ServiceIn this case, you use the Datamaker UI to create a test data mart and configure test matching. After you configure test matching rules, you design the visual flow using CA ARD and publish the forms for the testers to get on-demand access. The testers can access these forms, from CA TDM Portal Self-Service Catalog interface that lets testers dynamically request and receive data to execute their test cases.
