Applying Data Generation Rules to XML Elements and Attributes

Applying Data Generation Rules to XML Elements and Attributes

Apply data generation rules to XML elements and attributes to generate test data in an XML file.
  1. In a project, click
    Discover
    Files
    .
    A list of XSD files in the project appears.
  2. Click the XSD file.
    The XSD file opens in a separate tab.
  3. Select the elements and attributes on which you want to apply the generation rule.
  4. In the
    Details
    pane, click
    Edit
    in the
    Data Generation
    section.
  5. Assign a data generation rule to the selected element or attribute. You can also create and assign an ad hoc generation rule.
    The following image shows a sample data generation rule assignment to an XML element:
    The Edit dialog box shows the Data Generation tab. A list of applicable data generation rules are displayed.

  9. If you select a link between the attributes or elements, click
    Edit
    from the
    General Properties
    section. Enter the minimum and maximum number of child records, and click
    OK
    .
    If you specify the range of child records for each link, TDM prioritizes the parent child ratio configured at the individual relationship level over the plan-level configuration.
