TestData Heater, Creating random test data during the transformation

TestData HeaterThe TestData Heater enables you to produce test data without resorting to the TestData Adapter within any transformation. Everyone agrees that the best test data is live data. However, the main problem with using real data is data protection. For example, you have an SQL database containing address data. In order to make data such as names, addresses, dates of birth, income levels, etc. anonymous, you just need connect the table on the READ side as well as the WRITE side. In the WRITE Adapter’s configuration check the option "Update existing data" and connect the applicable fields to a TestData Heater; it is as simple as that.
