English term or phrase: to populate (IT)
"populating the displays with objects" and "populating the configuration"
I know what it means, but I am not sure what the commonly used equivalent in German programming is.

Auffüllen (mit Daten)


Explanation:
I've seen "populieren" before, but in very scientific texts. "Auffüllen" is the more usual German term in this context.
