    I am new to CA TDM. My client already purchased CA TDM tool for test data management.

    For pilot, We are working on the below use case.

    Connect to Production/UAT Salesforce instance directly using CA TDM and then generate records/insert into Salesforce TDM instance.

     

    My Questions:

    1. Salesforce is cloud  application, Is it possible to fetch multiple records from Salesforce Production environment directly?

    2. Also, How we can insert multiple generated records back to Salesforce test environment?

    Please help us with correct answers which would helps us better.

    Hi Jagadeesh, 

     

    I do not believe it is possible to connect TDM to Salesforce.


    Here is information on supported databases and data sources: Supported Data Sources - CA Test Data Manager - 3.8 - CA Technologies Documentation  

     

    Here is information on how to create an Enhancement Request for adding integration between TDM and Salesforce: http://www.ca.com/us/services-support/ca-support/ca-support-online/knowledge-base-articles.tec1107947.html  

     

    If you would like help with this custom implementation, please reach out to your CA Account Manager so that we can involve CA Services to help scope requirements and implement this solution. 

     

    If you do not know who your account manager is, please call CA Customer Care at one of these numbers Contact CA Support - CA Technologies

     

    Best regards, 

    Taylor

    Thanks for your comments, Any guidance how we can import and export data through Salesforce?

     

    Basically, We are trying to pilot CA Test Data Manager for a Salesforce application and these are the below use cases.

    1. Create Synthetic data and  export to Salesforce test environment.

    2. Integrate HP Quality Center to view the test cases and plan.

     

    Any help in this regard with helpless better to start with implementation
