Test Data Projects contain the data model for each application or database for which test data should be generated in GenRocket. A project represents one data model. For example, if a user wants to generate test data for a Customer Database, this would be a single test data project. To learn more about Projects, click here.

Each Test Data Project has an owner, which is the user who created the project. Projects may be filtered by the owner within the Project Dashboard

Troubleshooting - I cannot see the New Project Button

If the New Project button is not visible within the Projects Pane in the Project Dashboard, you have not been given permission within the GenRocket web platform to create a new Project. 

Please contact the Organization Admin for GenRocket within your organization. They can assign the appropriate role if you should be permitted to create Projects in the GenRocket web platform.
