Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to order the tables in the Portal Masking?
I have couple of tables that is dependent on each other so the where clause of one uses the other.
Even though I have defined relationships between the two tables in TDM Portal, TDM Portal still lists the tables in alphabetical order.
In FDM I could edit the order of tables in CSV or add the tables in a particular order to mask them but does not seem to be possible through TDM Portal.
Please suggest.

TDM Portal v4.10.5.0

Environment

TDM 4.10.x

Test Data Manager

Resolution

Per our best Practice documentation for masking, it is suggested that when masking and you have constraints and relationships these are dropped and reestablished once the masking is done.

currently, there is no way to set a specific order in the TDM portal for masking.
