Introduction to Presets
Previous  Top  Next

"Presets" are a powerful way of making it more easy to create your Data Generator Project. They can be seen as "shortcuts" to data generation, or as a library of pre-configured data generation.

For example, a Dutch zip-code has a format of 4 numbers and 2 uppercase alphabetic characters. Creating a string-preset named "Dutch Zip-code" and type "Masked values" with a value of "NNNN[ ]AA", I could be selecting this preset very easily whenever I need to generate a Dutch zip-code value.

Presets are datatype specific. The following datatypes and types of data are supported:

Random

String

For a "string" datatype, the "Random" section is different, as the following different random strings can be generated:
·Random values (length n to m)  
·Globally Unique Identifier (GUID)  
·URLs  
·E-mail addresses  
·Address (streetname + number)  
·Full names (first name + last name)  
·Masked values
