Seeding is a practice used to generate the same set of random data for the same value of a seed.
In GenRocket, a seed value may be assigned to ensure that the same random data set is generated for a value of a seed every time.
A seed value may be entered in multiple locations within GenRocket including the Domain's Global Seed Variable or within the Generator configuration for an Attribute.
Let's say you have two Attributes: number1 and number2.
Each Attribute is using the RandomGen Generator to display random numbers ranging from 1 to 25.
When no value is entered for the number1 Attribute seed parameter, then the generated random data set will be different every time.
Now, when a value of 1 is entered for the number1 Attribute seed parameter, a specific set of random data will be generated.
This data will appear as shown below and will be the same set each time for the number1 Attribute.
If this same seed value is entered for the number2 Attribute using the same Generator configuration, then it will have the same random set of test data as shown above.
However, if a different value is entered such as 2, then a different set of random data will be generated.
The data will appear as shown below for the number2 Attribute.
