TDM Process

TDM Process

Run a profile against source data, create a subset of the data, and mask the subset data.
The TDM process includes the following high-level steps:
  1. Create policies that define the types of data you want to mask and the rules that you might use to mask the data.
  2. Create a project and import data sources.
  3. Optionally, discover information about the source data. Run profiles for data and metadata discovery to discover primary keys, entities, and data domains.
  4. Define data subset operations and data masking operations. Define the tables that you want to include in the subset database and the relationships between the tables. Assign data masking rules to columns in the source data.
  5. Define data generation operations. Define the tables that you want to include and assign data generation rules to columns in the target table.
  6. In addition to the target connection, to directly copy flat file results to an HP ALM server, enter the test tool integration properties in the plan.
  7. To store data in the test data warehouse, select the test data warehouse as the target in the plan.
  8. Generate and run the workflow for data masking, data subset, or data generation.
  9. Monitor the workflow.
