How to Access the Scenario Dashboard

The Scenario Dashboard can be accessed from two locations: 

  • Project Dashboard - Select a Scenario within the Scenarios pane. (shown below)
  • Domain Dashboard - Select a Scenario within the Domain Scenarios pane. 

How to Select Scenarios within the Scenario Dashboard

The Scenario Selection Menu above the Scenario Domains can be used to select a different Scenario within the Scenario Dashboard

Basic Scenario Information

Basic information about the Scenario (e.g., Scenario Name and Description) can be viewed and managed at the top of the Scenario Dashboard.

The following menus, options, and buttons can be found below the basic information for a Scenario: 

Select a Project Version Variable Set to use for a downloaded Scenario. To learn more about Project Version Variable Sets, click here.
Save changes made to a Scenario Name and Description.
Download a Scenario to a user's local computer for test data generation.

Copy of a Scenario within the same Template Domain.

Note: The copied Scenario will have the same configuration and can be modified without affecting the original Scenario.
Remove a Scenario from a Domain.
Make the Scenario stateful.
Make the Scenario stateless. Scenarios are stateless by default.
Create and manage Categories for Scenarios. It can also be used to place Scenarios in individual Categories.

Note: This is handy when users have a large number of Scenarios because it allows them to categorize Scenarios and search for them by Category within the Project Dashboard.
Initiate a lock at the Scenario Level. Locks prevent changes at the template level from cascading down to a Scenario at the Scenario Level.

Note: The Sync button will not be present when a Scenario is locked.

When a Scenario is locked, changes at the Template Level do not cascade down to the Scenario.

The Sync button can be used to sync the data and ensure the Scenario has all of the template level changes.
