Test Data Warehouse Process

Test Data Warehouse Process

Store data in the test data warehouse to manage multiple versions of test data in a central location.
The following image shows the tasks that you perform to store data in the test data warehouse and the tasks that you can perform on the data in the test data warehouse:
The image shows the tasks that you perform to create a data set and the tasks that you can perfom on a data set in the test data warehouse.
You can perform the following tasks on data that you store in the test data warehouse:
Edit metadata
You can edit the tags and the description that you add to a data set.
Change permission settings
You can change user permission levels for a data set to control the level of access to the data set.
Lock and unlock a data set
The administrator and the data set owner can lock and unlock a data set. Lock a data set to prevent users from editing or resetting a data set to a target test system. For example, if you want to check the data before users reset a system with the data. A data set owner can perform a reset on a data set that is locked.
Reset
You can reset a data set to a target system to return the test data on the system to a specific state.
Edit the data
You can edit the data in a data set. You can update the data, add or delete rows, and add row-level tags to the data.
Create a related data set
You can create a subset of a data set based on required criteria.
Analyze the data for test data coverage
You can analyze the data in a data set based on data requirements for test cases and then edit the data for better test case coverage.
Delete
You can delete a data set from the test data warehouse.
