Designing a structural view of a schema

To define how the item and group types are organized and are related to each other, you must design the structural view of a schema before generating the test data.

Before you begin

You must have a group type in your schema.

About this task

When you design the structural view of a massive schema, you can filter the item or group types of your schema by using Filter.


  1. Double-click any group type from Dictionary.

    Alternatively, you can click the context menu of the selected group, and then select Structure.

    The Structure dialog box appears.
  2. Drag and drop the types from Dictionary to the Structure dialog box to map Item and Group types.
    Note: You can use the Category type to organize the data dictionary entities. You cannot map the Category type in the structure view.
  3. Save the changes.

What to do next

You can set restrictions and apply functions to define the component rules to any item type. You can also generate the test data without applying restrictions and functions. See Generating test data.
