  • 1.  ARD - SHOW_REPEAT Options?

    Posted Mar 03, 2017 09:06 AM

    When setting up Test Data in Agile Designer from Datamaker is there anyway to limit the maximum publish number with SHOW_REPEAT?  Right now, the default repeat options go from 1-100000 and we would like to limit that number.


    TDM Version: 4.0

    Agile Designer Version: 2.3

    Hi Norak,


    I searched the system tables in TDM and did not find one that is exposed to manipulate.  I did ask an ARD/TDM Expert and this is their response:


    I don’t think there is currently a way to do this in TDM without using table repeat counts and a variable (but even doing this doesn’t prevent a user submitting a massive request!)


    If you create a variable, like –RepeatLimit-. Put the description as – How many records do you require? Set the value to be a range or drop down list.


    You can apply this to the table repeat count. Then in TDoD for example it would give you a field you can pick the amounts from.


    You still get a publish amount at the end – but if they leave this as default 1 – you will get the repeated amount.


    This is the best answer that we have.  Does this help?

    Hi Norak,


    If the above is not sufficient, then I would ask that you submit an Idea to possibly put this on the Road Map as an enhancement.
