CA TDM Portal lets you create Data Generators for the projects created in CA TDM Portal (recommended) or Datamaker. The Data Generator includes the functionality to create data generation rules and publish synthetic data. You can copy generators, but only within the same project version.
If you want to create Data Generators for the projects created in Datamaker, ensure that the respective projects are configured with the default project levels. For example, Data Group, Data Set, Data Pool.
Generators require registered objects to generate data for in the project version that you associate with the generator. Before creating a generator, register file objects and create derived tables from them.
Follow these steps:
  1. Select an appropriate project and its corresponding version from the
    Project
    drop-down list in the top blue bar.
    This selection sets the required project and version context for all the related operations that you perform in the Portal.
  2. Click the
    Generators
    options in the left pane.
    The
    Data Generators
    page opens.
  3. Click
    New Generator
    .
    The
    Create New Generator
    page opens.
