Composing a schema

To generate the test data, you require a schema. You can compose a new schema if you do not have an existing schema or you do not want to generate the schema by using any external resource.

Before you begin

You must have a project.


  1. Select your project in HCL OneTest Server and go to the Data Fabrication page.
  2. Click New from the Schemas. Otherwise, select Create a schema from Quick Links.
    The New Schema dialog box is displayed.
  3. Provide a schema name.
  4. Select the default project folder or enter any project folder name.
  5. Enter keywords as tags which can help for quick search.
  6. Provide a brief description of the schema and click OK.
    The schema opens in the schema designer as Root as the data dictionary. You can view the schema name as a tab in the workspace.


The schema is displayed in the schema designer.

What to do next

You must define the types in your schema. For information about defining types, see Defining types.
