Importing a Profile

Importing a Profile

You can import profiles from the Model repository into TDM. You can then view the profile in Test Data Manager.
Verify that the source metadata and the data domains are in the TDM repository before you import the profile. Import the metadata into the project from a connection by the same name as the connection that you used to run the profile
If you delete the metadata from the project after you import a profile, the profile does not display results. If you import the metadata again, and import the profile again with a different name, the results appear in the first profile as well.
  1. Open the project and click the
    Discover | Profile
    view.
  2. Click
    Actions
    Import Profile
    .
    The
    Import Profiles
    dialog box appears.
  3. Select the profile that you want to import from the Model repository. Click
    Next
    .
    You cannot import a profile that contains a table name with special characters other than _.
  4. Optional. TDM imports the profile with the same name and description. Edit the profile name and description if required.
  5. Optional. Choose to import the curation information with the profile.
    When you import the curation information, TDM imports the saved review information and performs tasks based on the review information. For example, TDM assigns a data domain to a column if the inferred data domain is approved in a data domain profile.
  6. Select the required profile types.
    By default, TDM selects all the profile types that the profile contains. You can choose the profile types that you want to import.
  7. If you select the
    Column
    profile type, enter the column profile properties.
  8. Click
    Finish
    .
    The imported profile appears in the
    Discover
    view.
