Adding data generation in test step

Hello, when creating Data Generator project we should specify target database. But how does such file work with SQL Build Tfs add-on, when I don't want to specify database name there (instructing Sql Build to create some temp db with some temp name)?

    Hi there,

    You should be able to create a SQL Data Generator project against any database which has the same structure as the database under test. Save the project and then specify it by file name in the VSTS interface.

    DLMA will use the project file settings, substituting in the database name when it names the temporary database.

    Hi Michelle,
    Thank you for your response, that's clear for me now, Unfortunately I am unable to test the behavior now, because I'm experiencing some problems with Data Generation with DLM. As far as they are solved I will test the behavior
