Test Data Generation

Hi All,

Not sure if there is already tool like this, if not, it would help to have a test data generator.

It would be a combination of data type and nature of data. For e.g. Person Name whose meaning is self explanatory and is a string. Similarly phone number which is numeric but would be different than sales amount.
This can help save time during the development and QA phases when real live data might not be available and team would need to mock up such data for testing the code developed.

It may be driven by either some sort public databases like Government provides portals/APIs or internal alteryx maintained dictionary data.

An advanced step to this might be data generated by purpose. Say even inside Person name data would be different when testing a plain use caae vs master data management use case.
