Define Data Masking and Data Subset Operations

Define Data Masking and Data Subset Operations

To define data subset operations, define the tables that you want to include in the subset database and the relationships between the tables. To perform data masking operations, create a plan to run the masking operations. Add policies for masking the data. You can also add rules that are not in policies.
Perform the following tasks in Test Data Manager to define the data masking and data subset operations:
  1. Create groups to define the tables that you want to copy to the subset database. A group defines a set of unrelated tables.
  2. Assign data masking rules to columns in the data source.
  3. Create a data subset plan, and add the groups to it.
  4. Create a data masking plan and assign the policies and rules to the plan that you want to apply.
The TDM Server stores projects, groups, and plans in the TDM repository. When you generate and run workflows from plans, the Data Integration Service runs the workflows and loads the data into the target database.
