Data Discovery Overview

Data Discovery Overview

Run profiles to discover source data for data masking and data subset operations.
Before you run data masking, you can discover which columns to mask with the same masking rules. Before you create a data subset, you can discover relationships between tables. You can apply profiling results instead of manually applying a data masking rule to one column at a time.
You can run the following type of profile:
Data domain
Identifies the columns that belong in a data domain based on the data value of the column or the column name. Use the results when you apply data masking rules. You can apply a rule to all columns that belong to the data domain instead of manually applying the rule to one column at a time.
You can also import and run profiles that you create in Informatica Developer.
