Data Subset Process Flow

Data Subset Process Flow

Create a data subset to create a subset of production data that is referentially intact.
The following image shows the tasks that you perform to create a data subset and the tasks that you can perform on data subset components in Test Data Manager:
The image shows the tasks that you perform to create a data subset and the tasks that you can perform on data subset components.
You can perform the following tasks related to data subset in Test Data Manager:
Create criteria parameters
You can create criteria parameters. Use criteria parameters in entity filter criteria. You can then run the same workflow to create data subsets based on multiple criteria values without updating the entity, plan, or creating another workflow. You can use global criteria parameters across projects. Choose to import the parameter into a project before you use it or use it from the global level.
Create data subset components
You can create entities and groups. Add filter criteria to an entity to create a data subset of related tables based on required criteria. You can choose to use parameters in the filter criteria. Create a group to add one or more specific tables to a data subset.
Edit data subset components
You can edit entities and groups that you create or import and use the edited entities and groups to create a data subset. You can choose to optimize the relations between tables in an entity or choose to optimize relations when you run the workflow.
Export or import data subset components
You can export groups and entities that you create in Test Data Manager. You can import the entities and groups and use them to create a data subset with a different Test Data Manager Service.
Run a plan to create a data subset
You can add relational, flat file, or XSD sources to a plan to create a data subset based on criteria or subset components that you add to the plan.
