Regenerating test data

When you want to generate another set of test data by using an existing schema, then instead of defining a schema again, you can regenerate test data.

Before you begin

  • You must have a project.
  • You must have generated test data.

About this task

On the Jobs page, you can view the list of all test data generated jobs. If you want to use the existing data model or schema to generate different values of test data, you must regenerate with an empty seed value. However, if the seed value is not empty, then the same test data is generated as it was generated earlier for that schema.

Procedure

  1. Select your project in HCL OneTest Server and go to the Data Fabrication page.
  2. Click Jobs.
    You can view the list of data generated jobs.
  3. Select a job for which you want to regenerate the test data.
    You can select multiple jobs at a time to regenerate the test data.
  4. Click Regenerate data from the context menu or click the Regenerate data icon .

Results

The test data for the required schema is regenerated and is listed on the Jobs page.

What to do next

You can download the regenerated test data. See, Downloading test data.
