Parameter Files in Test Data Manager

Parameter Files in Test Data Manager

Create a parameter file to view a list of all parameters used in a plan. You can use the parameter file to include or exclude parameters and to edit parameter values when you run a workflow.
When you create a parameter file from a plan, the file includes all global and project parameters in the plan with the default values that you add during parameter creation.
The parameter file contains ignore flags for criteria parameters. By default the flags are set to "N". This means that by default a workflow that uses the parameter file includes the criteria parameters. To ignore a criteria parameter in a workflow, set the ignore flag to "Y" and save the file before you use it in a workflow.
Change parameter values each time you run a workflow to create test data on demand. For example, you want to create data subsets with different filter criteria values although the criteria is the same. Use a criteria parameter in the entity and the plan. You can then change the value of the criteria parameter to change the output each time you run the workflow. You can create different test data output when you choose specific criteria parameters to use each time you run the workflow.
Use connection parameters and owner parameters in a plan and change the parameter values in the parameter file to run a workflow on different source data each time.
