Transformation is a powerful tool that can cause data issues if used incautiously. Test all transformations before committing the changes to the CMDB. All transformation records open in Test mode by default, which blocks administrators from running manual data jobs that apply changes to existing data. Only users with the normalization_tester role can transform data when a record is in the Test mode. This is limited to new records opened by the tester or records in which the transformed field is updated by the tester. To apply transformations to the CMDB after testing, change the mode to Active in the transformation record and run the appropriate data job. For information on testing transforms, see Test a transform.
