To Generate the Flow for Creation of Synthetic Test Data, the following Files and Structure are needed.

The files that will be used to generate synthetic data should all be in the same folder.

They are:

  • The Configuration sheet (excel file) that you have created and was explained above.
  • The .dll that is the model that was generated in previous section of this documentation.
  • Any Event-hook Flow that you created in the process of specifying the data generation in the excel spreadsheet.
  • The main .vip file (in this case, SampleCommerce.vip).

Example File Folder:

Process

The role of the flow is to combine the configuration sheet information together with the application flow so that the synthetic data can be created in the next step.

  • Open VIP and create a new flow.
  • Save it in the same folder that contains the .vip file.
  • Go to Tools->Accelerators->Data Generation.
  • Browse to the Data Generation Configuration sheet.
  • The Configuration sheet is read and Generates the flow which can generate the data. You may need to click on various flow boxes to generate the data throughout the flow.
  • Once the flow is generated, please continue to the next section where the final step of executing the flow will be explained.
