How to maintain object tags in GTDatamaker.


This feature is designed to group large number of registered tables and columns together based on a criteria. This is particularly useful when performing any action on the registered object(s) or when writing transformation rules in the Transformation map screen. By clicking on the tag, only the set of tables that fit the definition of the tag will be displayed making the tester's life easy whenever he/she is working with a large set of tables.
