Override Inconsistent table definitions for DB2

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


While using generators to subset data, we are facing an issue – which I am sure is an extremely common issue and will be always there. Which is the table definition of a DB2 table is not matching in 2 environments.

The table definition in Target is - DISABLE_DOB_PIN CHARACTER 1 0 Y

The table definition in Source is - DISABLE_DOB_PIN CHARACTER 1 0 N 'N'          

As a result we are getting the following error in Publish job from Generators:

Publish T_USER                        SSO                            21 1 Inconsistent table definitions.  Please check the log file.

                                                            column DISABLE_DOB_PIN nullability in target doesn't match publish nullability


I want a way to override / ignore this issue in CA TDM. Can you please advise.

I had opened the same issue for an oracle table which was resolved by updating the application.properties with tdmweb.publish.switchOffPrecisionCheck=true, and restarting TDM Portal. 

But this is causing an issue for this DB2 table.


Can you please advise.

Data issue.


Ran outside TDM and was able to get an error.  The insert was incorrectly run, when we log ...

Name: ADDRS_CHNG_FLAG, Type: 1, Value: NULL

it means to insert a NULL value NOT the 'NULL' string

After the data change on the query, then gave an -803 error. Found that there were multiple columns with Unique indexes defined on them which resulted in the -803.

After fixing the data, the job is now running fine.
