Data Generation Properties

Data Generation Properties

Before you create a plan to generate data, you can define default settings in the
Administrator | Preferences
view. You can update the default settings when you create a data generation plan.
The default rules are not populated if the rules are not part of a particular project. If the default rules are blank, then you need to select the default rules that are applicable to the plan.
The following table describes the properties to update default settings for data generation:
