CA TDM Tutorial Videos

Last update December 15, 2017

The following tutorial videos provide extra information, context, and examples that augment the product documentation. 

End-to-End Integration

The following videos complement the Getting Started documentation:

CA Continuous Delivery Ecosystem

  

This video shows how you use CA Test Data Manager, CA BlazeMeter, CA Release Automation, CA APM, CA Agile Central, CA Agile Requirements Designer, CA Service Virtualization, and CA Application Test together to create a continuous delivery chain. For more information, see The CA Continuous Delivery Story.

Data-Enable Virtual Services

A core guide to the functionality available within CA TDM. See how CA TDM and CA Service Virtualization work hand in hand to provision data to virtual services. For more information, see Integration with CA Service Virtualization.

CA Service Virtualization Integration

Integrate CA Test Data Manager with CA Service Virtualization to generate and inject realistic virtual data into a running virtual service, and to execute varied testing scenarios for effective service virtualization. For more information, see Integration with CA Service Virtualization.

Find and Reserve Test Data

The following video complement the find and reserve documentation:

CA TDM Portal—Find and Reserve Test Data Interactively

This video demonstrates how testers use the dynamic self-service forms to interactively find, view, analyze, and reserve the test data. The CA TDM Portal helps organizations manage the full life-cycle of test data reservation. It lets TDEs create test data models, which simplify the overall data reservation process by encapsulating the automatic creation and management of test data marts. Furthermore, by sharing the test data models with testers as dynamic self-service forms, the CA TDM Portal also ensures that the data becomes available to testers in minutes. For more information, see Find and Reserve Test Data Interactively.

CA TDM Portal—Reserve Data Using CA ARD Forms

This video demonstrates how testers request and reserve test data using the CA Agile Requirements Designer (CA ARD) forms in the CA TDM Portal. Test data engineers (TDEs) can create self-service forms using CA ARD and expose them to the CA TDM Portal. These CA ARD-based self-service forms then become available to testers as forms in the Self-Service Catalog interface. As a tester, you can consume these CA ARD-based forms to publish the data, to perform the test match, and to attach the test data to HPALM or CA Agile Central test cases. For more information, see Reserve Data Using CA ARD Forms in the CA TDM Portal.

Provision Test Data

The following videos complement the Provisioning Test Data documentation:

CA TDM Portal—Create Test Data Models

This video describes how test data engineers (TDEs) use the CA Test Data Manager (CA TDM) Portal to create test data models that facilitate the data reservation process for testers. Created test data models are then shared with testers as dynamic self-service forms in the Self-Service Catalog interface of the Portal. Testers can use these forms to interactively find, view, analyze, and reserve the test data. For more information, see Configure Dynamic Test Data Reservation Service.

CA TDM Project Setup and Walkthrough

A 101 guide on how you set up a new project workspace within CA Test Data Manager, followed by a high-level walkthrough of the main features. We show you around the product to find the quickest ways to complete your tasks. For more information, see Create and Edit Projects.

CA TDM Test Data Profiling

A 101 introduction to data profiling with CA Test Data Manager. Understand the key reasons why profiling your data estate is important, and learn best practices, tips, and tricks to make this an easy process. For more information, see Profile (or Sample) Your Data.

CA TDM Test Data Visualization

A quickstart guide to launching and using CA TDM Test Data Visualizer. Analyse your test data coverage, and spot the gaps in your test systems. For more information, see Visualize Test Data Coverage.

CA TDM Diagrammer

The following video shows how to use GT Diagrammer to visualize a Database Schema into an Entity-Relationship Diagram. For more information, see GT Diagrammer.

CA TDM Test Data Subsetting

A 101 introduction to CA TDM Data Subset and its major functionalities. Learn how to move data from database to database whilst maintaining referential integrity with ease, repeatability, and efficiency. For more information, see Subset Production Data.

CA TDM Test Data Masking

A 101 guide on setting up a new Masking routine and obfuscating data. Learn how to build, validate and run masking jobs to secure your data from threats. For more information, see Mask Production Data with Fast Data Masker.

CA TDM Test Data Cloning

A 101 introduction to basic data cloning. Learn how to use CA Test Data Manager to clone copies of your data in bulk from very simple beginnings, and create an army of clones to test with. For more information, see Subset Production Data.

CA TDM Test Data Generation

A 101 introduction guide to basic a data generation for beginners. Learn how to build structured rules and routines that generate data as and when its required. See the core data generation functionality and see how easy it is to do. For more information, see Mask Production Data with Fast Data Masker.

CA TDM Virtual Test Data Mangement (vTDM)

CA TDM Data Discovery and Profiling

This video describes how Test Data Engineer (TDE) use the CA TDM Portal to scan Data Sources for PII data against one or more Classifier Packs, confirm the findings, and create a draft report to be signed off. An Internal Data Controller reviews the findings in the draft report and signs off. An Internal Auditor can download and review the final Audit report and a Management User or an External Auditor can request the Audit Report from the TDE. For more information about Data Discovery and Profiling, see PII Audit Using CA TDM Portal.
