CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)



Hi Broadcom Team,

We deploy CA TMD portal on a Kubernetes cluster, and we have an issue when we modify a configuration file and restart the pod.
When the pod is restarted it comes up with the default configuration.
We tried to delete the pod, to scale down, and to kill the process in the pod, same result, it restarts with the default configuration.

How can we change the configuration file, without rebuilding the image?  

1- I go to the pod ( for this exemple tdmweb )
2- I modify the file in /opt/tdm/conf
3- I delete the pod 
4- the pod restarts and I am going into the pod 
5- the file come back the same before my changes 






TDM  4.9.1

Component: Test data manager Web Portal



The file is overwritten using the environment settings in the Kubernetes file.
The client needs to add the updates to the environment setting in the Kubernetes config file.  

This is the relevant entry:
