Data Validation Option allows you to export and import test metadata from the repositories. Metadata import and export allows users to share tests and allows rapid generation of tests through scripting.
Scripting is particularly useful in the following scenarios:
You have a very large number of repetitive tests for different table pairs. In this situation, it might be faster to generate the tests programmatically.
The source-to-target relationships and rules are defined in a spreadsheet. This often happens during data migration. You can script the actual Data Validation Option tests from the spreadsheets.
