Managing jobs

You can view, manage the generated test data, and check the status of the jobs performed on the Jobs page.

You can also regenerate, download test data, and delete the generated data if it is no longer required on the Jobs page.

You can perform a quick search for the test data generated jobs based on the name of the schema or the date range by selecting the From and To dates. If the To field is blank, you can view the results till the most recent date.

Viewing job status

You can view the status of all your test data generation jobs in the Status column on the Jobs page. When the test data generation of any schema initiates, the status of that job is shown as Started. As the test data generation progresses, the status of that job changes to In Progress. After the test data generation completes successfully, the status changes to Complete. If the generation of test data fails, you can view the status of that particular job as Failed.

Regenerating test data

When you want to generate another set of test data by using an existing schema, then instead of defining a schema again, you can regenerate test data.

Before you begin

  • You must have a project.
  • You must have generated test data.

About this task

On the Jobs page, you can view the list of all test data generated jobs. If you want to use the existing data model or schema to generate different values of test data, you must regenerate with an empty seed value. However, if the seed value is not empty, then the same test data is generated as it was generated earlier for that schema.

Procedure

  1. Select your project in HCL OneTest™ Server and go to the Data Fabrication page.
  2. Click Jobs. You can view the list of data generated jobs.
  3. Select a job for which you want to regenerate the test data. You can select multiple jobs at a time to regenerate the test data.
  4. Click the Regenerate data icon .

Results

The test data for the required schema is regenerated and is listed on the Jobs page.

What to do next

You can download the regenerated test data.

Downloading test data

When you want to reuse the data of any specific schema definition for some other project, you can download the generated test data into your local file system.

Before you begin

  • You must have a project.
  • You must have generated test data.

Procedure

  1. Select your project in HCL OneTest Server and go to the Data Fabrication page.
  2. Click Jobs. You can view the list of test data generated jobs.
  3. Select a job for which you want to download the generated test data. You can select multiple jobs at a time to download the test data.
    Note: You can download the test data only for the jobs that are completed successfully.
  4. Click the Download data icon .

Results

The generated test data is downloaded in the zip format in your local file system. When you download multiple jobs, then the zip format of the jobs are organized by time.

Deleting generated data

When any of the generated test data is of no further usage, you can delete that specific test data from your project.

Before you begin

  • You must have a project.
  • You must have generated test data.

About this task

On the Jobs page, you can view the list of all the projects for which you have generated the test data. You can remove the reference of any specific test data.

Procedure

  1. Select your project in HCL OneTest Server and go to the Data Fabrication page.
  2. Click Jobs. You can view the list of data generated jobs.
  3. Select a job for which you want to delete the test data. You can select multiple jobs at a time to delete.
  4. Click the Delete icon Delete.

Results

The selected test data is deleted from your project.
