Default Domain Variables

Each time a Domain is created, it is automatically assigned three default Domain Variables: 

  • - Defines the primary ID for a Domain, which represents the start range of the Id Attribute.
  • global.DomainName.loopCount - Defines the number of times a Domain's data is generated by a Scenario.
  • global.DomainName.seed - Used to make Generators that generate random data generate the same random data set for a seed value every time Scenario is being run.

The default value for each of these Domain Variables is 1. The value may be modified; however, these variables cannot be deleted from the Domain. Custom Domain Variables can be added as well.
