Table Synchronization with Datamaker and Portal


Article ID: 8771

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


We are selecting existing tables in Portal and not seeing the fields there like they were when saved in Datamaker.
We created a table from a DDL that contained a column of type timestamp for SQL server, then we registered the table in Datamaker.

Steps to reproduce:
1. In Datamaker, have table populated with variables. 
2. In Data Painter, have ~SDATE~ variable, validate, and save in the Data Pool and Data Definition window. 
3. Go to the Portal and check the Generators. 
- The variables are not showing up and either is the the timestamp. 
- Ex. choose ~SDATE~ 2017-11-17 00:00:00:000 
- We are selecting existing tables and not seeing the fields there like were saved in Datamaker. 
- It does not seem like it's truly being stored in Datamaker. 


If you make any changes to the schema and re-register a table in Datamaker that you already registered in Portal, the updates will not be reflected in the Portal. 


CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Datamaker & Portal


Re-register the table directly in the TDM Portal and then you will be able to see the data sync on both Datamaker and the Portal.
