Data Generation Task Flow

Data Generation Task Flow

To implement data generation operations, assign generation rules to target columns. Create a plan and add rules to the plan. Generate a workflow from the plan and run the workflow to generate data in the target database.
To create the components that you need in a data generation plan, perform the following high-level steps:
  1. Create generation rules that define the generation techniques and configure the parameters. Define default rules that generate data for columns that you do not assign a generation rule to.
  2. Create a project and import metadata into the project.
  3. If you want to restrict the generated values in a column based on values in another column, create a conditional constraint.
  4. Add generation rules to the project and assign the rules to columns in the project.
  5. Create a plan and add data generation components to the plan.
  6. Generate and run the plan. View the progress of the workflow in the
    Monitor
    view.
