Database Connections

Database Connections

TDM requires a connection to a database source to perform data discovery operations. It also requires connections for relational sources and targets for data subset and data masking.
Configure connections in the Administrator view of Test Data Manager. To connect TDM to databases, you do not need to install a separate driver.
When you generate workflows from data subset or masking plans, you must select connections for relational sources and targets. Select these connections in Test Data Manager when you create a plan. TDM tests the connections when it generates workflows from plans, and the
Data Integration Service
uses the connections when it runs the workflows.
