DB2 for IOS

DB2 for IOS

You can perform data masking, data movement, data subset, and data generation operations on the DB2 for IOS data types. You cannot apply constraints on DB2 for IOS databases. To perform data discovery on DB2 for IOS data types, you must import profiles that you create in Informatica Developer.
The following table describes the operations that you can perform on data types in DB2 for IOS database:
