Issue/Introduction

      We are facing issue while  data generation since it has tilde '~' symbol present in it's content. Can you please try this and let us know the resolution.

example : one of the fields is <Remit~190110~Bene Name Enh~>. So it is failing giving following error:

 

An error occurred resolving TABLE: instrument_record COLUMN: payment_ref_1. The expression was <Remit~190110~Bene Name Enh~>. The error is <resolve_meta_data_item: TDMServiceException: unknown variable: 190110> 

Cause

As "Tilda" used in datamaker for variable representation, it is throwing an error.

An error occurred resolving TABLE: instrument_record COLUMN: payment_ref_1. The expression was <Remit~190110~Bene Name Enh~>. The error is <resolve_meta_data_item: TDMServiceException: unknown variable: 190110> 

Environment

Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution

    

   In order to use Tilda (~) character, replace ~ with @char(126)@ so that, data rule will covert 126 into ~ and generate the data.

Example:

[email protected](126)@[email protected](126)@Bene Name [email protected](126)@

will resolve as

Remit~190110~Bene Name Enh~ during publishing.
