TDM GUI Overview

The TDM GUI is a web-based application that helps users to easily control and manage test data. It has two main functions:

  • TDM administrative activities: Defining TDM Business Entities, environments, roles and permissions.
  • TDM copy activities: Creating and executing TDM tasks that provide a selected subset of entities or reference tables to a selected environment.

TDM settings and tasks are saved in the TDM PostgreSQL DB. Each TDM activity created by a user via the TDM GUI updates the TDM DB.

The TDM GUI uses APIs to connect to the TDM DB to retrieve and update TDM settings and tasks.

TDM GUI - Login

The TDM GUI application is pre-integrated with Fabric Web Framework. The user logins into the Fabric Web Framework and Fabric authenticates the user.

Fabric works with several authentication providers. Each authenticator is responsible for user authentication, and provides user-ID and his roles. The following are the supported by Fabric as authentication providers:

  • Fabric, for console, WS and web access, using its repository. This is Fabric's default authentication method.
  • LDAP server, for console, WS and web access. Done via LDAP integration.
  • ADLDAP (Active Directory) server, for console, WS and web access. Done via LDAP integration.
  • SAML server, for web and WS access. Done via SAML IDP integration.

TDM Breadcrumbs

The TDM GUI uses breadcrumbs as a graphical control element to aid navigation across user interfaces whereby users can track their position in the TDM screens. For example, to display the details of a given task's execution:

breadcrumbs

  • Click Task Execution Summary - lo111s to display the executions list of lo111 task.
  • Click Tasks to display all TDM tasks.

TDM Soft Delete

A Delete activity generally changes the status of a selected object to Inactive and does not delete the object from the TDM DB. The object remains in the TDM DB and its history can be displayed in the TDM GUI.

Inactive objects cannot be repaired.
