Test data management for automation is not just adding some fields in cucumber…
Test data management can include:
– Developing & using mocks for running low level tests in the pipeline
– Data creation & cleaning on the fly (more here: http://bit.ly/QS_tdc)
– Using masked production data & refresh it on a regular cadence (for exploratory / behavioral tests)
For all three, the data generation, storage and usage techniques are going to be very different.
And if you are working in a large enterprise, you most probably will need ALL THREE
No one said automation is easy..
