Running a data generation job
The data generation job uses the configured tables modes and generators to transform the data in the source database. The transformed data is used to create the destination database.
You use the Generate Data button at the top right of the application to start the data generation.
If you configured subsetting, then you can choose whether to generate only the subset.

Determining whether you can run the data generation

As you configure the data generation options, Tonic runs checks to verify that:
  • The source and output databases are connected properly.
  • The configured table modes and generators are compatible with each other.
  • The subsetting configuration is valid.
  • There are no other unresolved errors.
If all of the checks pass, then the Generate Data button is green, and you can run the data generation job.
If any of these checks do not pass, then you cannot run the data generation job. The Generate Data button is not green. When you click Generate Data, Tonic displays information about why you cannot run the data generation job.

Running the data generation job

When the Generate Data button is green, then when you click the button, the Confirm Generation panel displays.
