CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)

Issue/Introduction

When generating a data model in project on the TDM portal with only two tables, the functionality searches the 52400 tables of the db2 data model (mainframe).


Cause

 

Working as designed.

Environment

Release : 4.9.53

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution

Working as designed.

The way the scan works, it first "discovers" all the tables in the database, but the actual tables scanned will only be the tables you included/excluded, these will be the only tables in the Data Model.

There is a backlog item to speed/change this process to be more efficient.
