The 'Generator' Building Blocks
Generator blocks are used to generate dynamic data such as random or sequenced numbers, passwords, date/time and more.
The Generate Number block can be used to generate random numbers with specific properties such as min/max ranges, odd/even and more. The Generate date/time block can be used to get the current system date/time (which can then be manipulated or offset with the Offset date/time block).
There are three generator building blocks such as:
- Date and time generator: Generate date\time is used to generate the system dates/times in region-specific formats. Date/time format can be selected by expanding the date/time field. date can be in year, month and day format. Time can be in hour, minute, second and millisecond format.
- Number generator: Random numbers or sequence of numbers to specify the number of decimals to round the result. Also generate the odd, even and all type of numbers.
- Password generator: Random password in region-specific, human-readable form with multiple formatting options (e.g. “John@007”, “johnSmith@123”, etc). It includes upper case character, number and symbol.
