Result String Replacement Characters

Result String Replacement Characters

Result string replacement characters are a set of characters that the PowerCenter Integration service can use to mask to the source data. You can configure the masking rule to mask the source only from the set of characters, or you can configure the masking rule to mask the source with any character except the result string replacement characters.
The PowerCenter Integration Service replaces characters in the source string with the result string replacement characters. For example, enter the following characters to configure each mask to contain uppercase alphabetic characters A through F:
ABCDEF
To avoid generating the same output for different input values, configure a wide range of substitute characters, or mask only a few source characters. The position of each character in the string does not matter.
The following table describes the options for result string replacement characters:
Option
Description
Use only
Masks the source with only the characters you define as result string replacement characters. For example, if you enter the characters A, B, and c, the masking replaces every character in the source column with an A, B, or c. The word "horse" might be replaced with
BAcBA
.
Use all except
Masks the source with any characters except the characters you define as result string replacement characters. For example, if you enter A, B, and c result string replacement characters, the masked data never has the characters A, B, or c.
