Issue/Introduction

 
The Data Prefetch (on demand or periodic) is not working when we synchronize the repository (BdGTREP) with the database origin is DB2 type.
 
The only way to sinchronize the data is:
 
- Removing the model.
- Restarting Windows service "CA Test Data Manager Portal".
- Creating the model again.

Cause

Working as Designed.

Environment

Release : 4.8.1

Component : CA Test Data Manager - TDM Web Portal

Resolution

As per development, when we sync data between source and target, we empty (truncate) the target before we copy all data to target from source.

All data from source is copied to target.

If there is new data in the source table after the sync then the target table will again be out of sync until the next sync job.

This is how the product is designed.
