Projects contain no customer data. Projects contain aspects of your data model as reflected in the GenRocket 5 key components: the Domains, Attributes, Generators, Receivers and Scenarios that will generate data for your testing use cases.
When should Projects be used?
Projects contain the data model for each application or database you want to generate test data for in GenRocket. A project represents one data model. For example, if you want to generate test data for a Customer Database, this would be a single test data project.
How do Projects work?
- Log into GenRocket and access the Project Dashboard
- Create a new Project in GenRocket
- Import or Create your Data Model
- Establish Referential Integrity through Parent-Child-Sibling Relationships

Projects are created and managed from the Projects Pane within the Project Dashboard.
New Projects will have a default Project Version when they are created. This information can be viewed within the Project Versions Pane of the Project Dashboard.
Additional Project Versions can be created and used to manage different testing configurations for a Project.
