Now that our data models are deployed, we need some data to be able to view on our application. We can take advantage of AWS Amplify's autogenerate tool to create some sample data for our posts and our blog.

Instructor: [0:00] Your app will take a few minutes to deploy, but once it does, edit your backend. Once in the admin UI, manage your app content. Auto-generate five rows of sample data. Do the same for your blogs. Go to your blog and link to an existing post, or choose all of them, then click Save Blog.

[0:42] Now, you've created some sample data so that you can try out your app without needing to build a form first. We've deployed our app backend, and we've made it so that we have some sample data to play around with.

I can't find Auto-Generate

it seems auto-generating posts is no longer possible due to the relationship constraint. I can still auto-generate blogs though and used the fake-filler extension to manually create posts
