Issue/Introduction

When I try to connect to the repository in Datamaker, I receive the following error message: 


Test Data Repository: Repository is not populated! 
The Repository table gtrep_system is not populated so this Repository cannot be used. 

Cause

This error is usually seen when the repository is not installed and setup correctly using the Datamaker Repository Kit. We highly recommend working with a DBA for this process.
