Data Domain Import

Data Domain Import

Before you import a profile, verify that TDM contains the objects in the profile. So before you import a data domain profile, you must import the data domains in the profile. You can import data domains from the Model repository into TDM. You can edit the data domain in Test Data Manager after you import it.
If you edit a data domain in the Developer tool after you import it, you can import it again to update the data domain in TDM.
You can view data domains that you import in the list of data domains in the
Policies
view.
When you import a data domain from the Model repository, TDM imports the following information in the data domain:
  • Name
  • Description
  • Links to business terms created in the Analyst tool
TDM does not import the following information in the data domain:
  • Data pattern
  • Metadata pattern
  • Preferred rule
If a data domain with the same name exists in TDM, you can choose to overwrite it. If you continue, TDM imports and updates the description and linked business terms of the data domain. It does not overwrite the data patterns, metadata patterns, and preferred rules that you configured within Test Data Manager.
When you import a data domain, TDM merges the linked business terms and retains existing linked business terms. If you re-import a data domain after you delete a linked term from it in the Developer tool, TDM retains the linked term that you deleted. You can manually delete the linked business term from Test Data Manager.
If you re-import a data domain after you change the name of the data domain in the Developer tool or in Test Data Manager, TDM updates the name. You cannot re-import the data domain if a data domain in TDM has the same name.
You can edit data domains that you import in Test Data Manager. You can edit the description, or add a data pattern, metadata pattern, or preferred rule. You can add or delete links to business terms.
