Test Data Generation

By 'opening' the Test Data section in the GUI it is possible to Generate a Data Grid filled with Random Data.

Test Data Grid

The Test Data Grid contains the 'schema' or 'template' to use to generate data for the grid.

Each row represents a Column in the final data grid.

Add a new column by pressing the + Add Row button.

You can rename the column by double clicking on the Column Name field.

The Type is the type of data that will be generated in the column. This can be a RegEx (Regular Expression), or one of the predefined random data types e.g. random.word or random.boolean etc.


The Types of data available can be chosen from the drop down value.

The drop down is an option select so you can type in a filter e.g email and you will see any matching options for email.

Number of Rows to Generate

Configure how many rows of data to generate by typing the numeric value in the How Many? text field.

e.g. to generate 1000 rows of data enter 1000 in the How Many? text input field.

Generating Data

Press the [Generate] button to generate the data.

The schema in the Column Definition Data Grid will be used to generate the data.

All data generation happens in the browser so the amount of data you can generate is limited only by the performance and memory of your computer.

Text Area

When you add rows using the data grid, you will see the information is also copied into the text area in the right. This allows you to copy and paste schema definitions for re-use.

The Schema format in the Text Area uses the format

column name
type value


column 1

When no type is present it is assumed to be a Regex e.g. 1234 is a Regex that represents the string "1234"
