Many customers integrate their CA Agile Requirements Designer (ARD) flows with CA Test Data Manager-Datamaker (TDM). The purpose of saving your ARD flows to Datamaker is for sharing and collaboration. Team members who have access to Datamaker will be able to see the ARD flows and test cases for certain projects. Users do not need access to a TDM installation in order to save ARD flows to the repository, just the TDoD service URL, username, and password. 


I am trying to connect to the repository of Datamaker while in Agile Designer. I am being prompted for my TDoD Service URL. Where do I find that?
