CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


While performing data generation we use NEXTVAL Sequence function for the parent table. For the child tables we used reference lookup using the tablename and columnname.

We have created the variable and While publishing the data to target environment for single value, it is updating fine and if we use multiple values, the column value is getting duplicated in child tables with 1st record value.

Currently, we are using 4.9.333.0 version of CA Portal.




Release : 4.9.1

Component : CA Test Data Manager - Others
