Rules and Guidelines for Parameters

Rules and Guidelines for Parameters

You can create parameters in a project and then use the parameters in TDM operations.
Consider the following rules and guidelines when you use parameters to perform TDM operations:
  • If you use a connection parameter for an Oracle source connection, you cannot enable the Oracle
    Rowid
    property.
  • You cannot perform batch updates for inplace masking if you use connection parameters because a batch update requires a staging connection. You cannot use a parameter for a staging connection.
  • If you use connection parameters in a plan and select the same connection parameter as source and target, the
    Update Strategy
    property value does not change to
    Update
    .
    You can choose to use one of the following workarounds:
    • Select the
      Use Source Connection as Target Connection
      option. When you select the option, the
      Update Strategy
      property value changes to
      Update
      .
    • Manually change the value of the
      Update Strategy
      property to
      Update
      .
