I am receiving the following error when trying to save my Agile Designer flow to Test Data Manager:

Cannot save visual flows to this level. Please select a level which allows saving visual flows (such levels are marked in green).

I have tried different permission settings and tried using an Administrator account, but I am still having the same issue. 

CA Agile Requirements Designer (ARD)- Agile Designer

The reason you are seeing this error message is because you cannot save a flow to a Version level. If you do not have anything else showing besides the project and version folder, you will need to create at least a Data Group under that project to save your flow to. Make sure to have the Data Group/Set/Pool as type 'Agile Designer' and set to be 'Available on Demand'. 


First you need to make sure you have a Data Group, Data Set, and Data Pool created in Datamaker for the Project you are trying to save to. Follow the steps in this documentation on how to create a project: 

Right click on your Data Pool (or whichever group you are saving your flows to) and choose the 'Properties' option.

In your 'Edit' window, do the following:

- Check the box for 'Available on demand'
- Under the 'Type' dropdown, choose the 'Agile Designer' option.
- Click the Save icon to save your changes. 

Once this has been done in Datamaker, you will be able to see the hierarchy in ARD and be able to access/save to without error.

In Agile Designer, try to save your flow to Datamaker again. You should see the Data Group/Set/Pool and be able to save successfully.
