Data Generation Rule Assignments

Data Generation Rule Assignments

You can assign a global or an ad hoc generation rule to a column within a project.
To assign a rule, choose a rule from the list in the
Generation Rule
column or select
New Generation Rule
. If you do not select a rule, the column receives the default rule that you configure in default settings.
The following image shows the

The Data Generation view contains table, column, data type, is null, generation rule, and override columns.
The following table describes the fields in the
Data Generation
view:
