Issue/Introduction

We have created a custom seedlist in our project. When inside the portal and including the seedlist within a data painter function - EG. @randlov(0,@seedlist(CustomSeedlist)@)@, it validates fine.
However, when we are connected to this project through Agile Requirements Designer and do the same validation with the custom seedlist, it fails.

We get the following error when it fails:
 (Invalid Expression)

Cause

The issue is due to custom seedlist tied to a specific project/user and not accessible by others.

Environment

ARS 3.0.x 3.1.x
TDM 4.7.x, 4.8.x 4.9.x

Component: AGILE REQUIREMENT DESIGNER TEST DATA MANAGER INTEGRATION

Resolution

The customer seedlist needs to be made global by changing the value of the Rd_Proj_Id column for that seedlist (Rd_Ref_Id) in the gtrep_reference_data table in the TDM repository with the below query.

First check the details of the seedlist:
select * from dbo.gtrep_reference_data where Rd_Ref_Id='CustomSeedlistName'

Then update:
update dbo.gtrep_reference_data set Rd_Proj_Id=0 where Rd_Ref_Id='CustomSeedlistName'


It is recommended that all the custom seedlist(s) be set as Global during creation.
