We want to work with our own seed list into data masking from TDM Portal.
I test using the default portal seed list "First name" but it takes off and message saying "Seed data file 'T:/Aplic/FastDataMasker/seedtables/FULLNAME.2.txt' not found", so what I did was go to create a custom seed list with the name FULLNAME.2.txt.
I would like to know how to show my own seed list on the masking functions into TDM portal when using RANDLOV and HASHLOV functions, but I cannot get the custom seed list file to show up in TDM Portal.
How do you add a custom seed list to TDM Portal?
Release : 4.8+
Component : CA Test Data Manager
Since TDM Portal uses the FDM masking engine for masking, you have to add the custom seed list file to FDM before it is seen in Portal.
Below are the steps to add a custom seedlist to the scramble.gtsrc_reference_data table.
Note: There are three existing FULLNAME files that ship as part of the FDM installation:
These three files are all part of the FullName Group, and can be used in combination with other seed lists to generate Full Names.
To Add a Custom Seed List to Datamaker
To add the New Seed List File to Fast Data Masker
With the changes made to the FastDataMasker config.xml file, you will now see the custom seed list file available to both FastDataMasker and TDM Portal, as seen below:
Example in FDM:
Clicking the preview button shows the first 20 lines of the file being read into FDM
Example in TDM Portal:
Note: The Seed List selection uses the description tag provided in the config.xml file.
Depending on our version of TDM Portal, you may not see the new seed list listed in the Masking Configuration until you stop and restart the CA Test Data Manager Portal service. There has been an Enhancement Request submitted to change the behavior of Portal so newly added seed lists are available on the fly, without restarting the Portal service.
If you decide to manually insert your custom seed list to the scramble.gtscr_reference_data table, see https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=238872
