TDM requires a connection to a database source to perform data discovery operations and a database target to perform data generation operations. It also requires connections for relational sources and targets for data subset and data masking. To store data sets in the test data warehouse, TDM requires a connection to a source and to a test data warehouse.
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. When you generate workflows from data generation plans, you must select connections for 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 Integration service uses the connections when it runs the workflows.
