Generators are automatically assigned to a new Attribute by the Data Warehouse based on usage statistics. When GenRocket cannot intelligently assign a Generator to an Attribute, it will assign the SimplePatternGen Generator as a placeholder. 

What are Generator Tags?

  • Generator Tags define rules for assigning a Generator automatically to new Attributes based on a specified tag value and match type. Generator Tags can be created at the Organization or Project Level.  

When should you use Generator Tags? 

  • Any time a Generator needs to be assigned to new Attributes other than what is being assigned by the Data Warehouse. 

How do Generator Tags work? 

  • When a new Attribute is created, GenRocket will check the Attribute's name for specified tag values. If a match is found, the Generator Tag will automatically assign the Generator to the new Attribute.
