This article will show how to import a Salesforce Object into a GenRocket Domain and then populate the Account with generated test data in real time. 

In This Article

Step 1 - Activate a Salesforce Profile

  • You will be prompted to activate a Salesforce Profile after selecting a Project in the GenRocket web platform.

  • Click on the desired Salesforce Profile to select it.

Step 2 - Retrieve the List of Salesforce Objects

  • Click the New Domain button within the Domains pane.

  • Select Import from Salesforce.

  • Click the Load Objects button to load your Salesforce Objects.

  • All Salesforce Objects will be loaded and displayed within the pop-up window.

  • Here, you can view each Salesforce Object in your environment.

Step 3 - Create a GenRocket Domain

To create a GenRocket Domain, you must finish importing the Salesforce Object.

  • Use the Filter field or the Page viewing options to view your Salesforce Objects.

  • Tick the radio button to select a Salesforce Object to be imported into a GenRocket Domain.

  • For this example, the AccountPOC_c Object has been selected.

  • Click the Next button after making your selection.

  • Next, select the Fields to be included within the created Domain. 

  • Check the box for each desired field. 

  • You may also use the Select All or Deselect All options to quickly select or remove all selections.

  • Click the Next button to continue with the import.

  • The selected Salesforce Object and Fields will be imported into a GenRocket Domain.

  • Each selected field for the Salesforce Object will be a Domain Attribute in GenRocket.

Step 4 - Generate Test Data

A few configuration changes and steps are necessary before generating and inserting test data back into Salesforce in real time.

Step 4a - Replace the Generator for the name Attribute

To generate more accurate test data, the name Attribute Generator will need to be replaced with the F500Name2014Gen Generator. This will produce a list of Fortune 500 Companies from 2014.

  • Click on an Attribute within the Domain Dashboard to view its Generator configuration.

  • For this example, the name Attribute will be selected, and its Generator will be changed.

  • The Generator configuration will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.

  • We want to replace the current Generator with the F500Name2014Gen Generator.

  • Click on the Quick Generator Replacement Menu and type F500Name2014Gen.

  • Click to select the F500Name2014Gen Generator and then click the Replace button.

  • Make any needed changes to the Generator configuration.

  • Click on any field to type a new value or use the drop-down menus to make a selection.

  • Click the Save Generator button to save your changes once finished.

Step 4b - Alter the Generator Configuration for the shippingCity Attribute

Next, we need to ensure the billingCity and shippingCity Attributes do not create different data.

  • Click on the shippingCity Attribute within the Domain Dashboard.

  • Select false for the autoReference configuration parameter.

  • Click the Save Generator button.

Step 4c - Change the Account Domain global loopCount to 20

A Domain's loopCount determines how many records of test data are generated. This information can be changed from the Domain Dashboard.

  • Click on the Edit (Pencil) icon to change this value.

  • Click on the Value field and enter a number value. For this example, 20 will be entered.

  • Click the Save button to finish.

Step 4d - Review the SFObjectInsertReceiver Configuration

  • The SFObjectInsertReceiver will be automatically added and configured for the Domain.

  • It can be viewed by clicking on SFObjectInsertReceiver within the Domain Dashboard.

  • The parameter configuration for the SFObjectInsertReceiver will appear as shown below for this example:

  • Click on the Attribute Property Keys Tab to see the configuration of the property keys.

Step 4e - Create a Scenario for Generating Test Data

Next, you will need to create a Scenario for the GenRocket Domain. Complete the following steps: 

  • In the Domain Dashboard, click the Quick Scenario button in the Domain Scenarios pane.

  • The Name will be automatically populated and match the Domain Name.

  • You may change the name if desired or add a Description.

  • Click the Save button to finish.

  • You will be redirected to the Scenario Dashboard, as shown below.

  • Here, you can make any needed configuration changes before generating and inserting data back into Salesforce.

Step 5 - Insert Test Data into Salesforce via REST

  • Click the Execute From Web button.

  • The data will be dynamically generated and inserted into Salesforce in real time.

  • Once the data has been generated, you can immediately go into Salesforce and see the results.
