Story Epics (G-Epics) Overview
Story Epics (or G-Epics) are a key part of GenRocket’s Self Service Test Data Portal. We organize all the Test Data Epic functionality into a part of the GenRocket platform we call “G-Epics.”
What is a Story Epic?
A Story Epic is a suite of individual Test Data Stories.
Stories added to a Story Epic can belong to the same or different Test Data Story Suites.
When should you use Story Epics?
Any time complex test data needs to be generated using multiple Test Data Stories.
Story Epics can be used to populate many tables or an entire database using a single command.

How to access the G-Epics Management Dashboard?
Within the Project Versions Pane, expand the Self Serve Menu Options drop-down menu for a Project Version of a given Project.

How do you use Story Epics?

Note: Many files may need to be downloaded to a user’s local computer to generate test data using Story Epics. We recommend setting up and using G-Repository and G-Repository Client to ensure the required, most up-to-date Scenarios and Instruction Sets are available to users automatically on their local computer.
