Project Components

Project Components

A project contains one or more data sources. Other components that you add to a project depend on the operations that you need to perform on the data.
The following table describes the components that you can create in a project:
Component
Operation
Description
Data Source
Data subset
Data discovery
Data masking
Data generation
Defines the input data that you want to transform.
Entity
Data subset
Data generation
Defines a set of related tables based on physical or logical constraints. Define an entity for a data subset or a data generation operation. Create an entity in the
Define
view of a project.
Group
Data subset
Defines a set of unrelated tables to copy to a target subset database with data subset. Create a Group in the
Define
view of a project.
Parameters
Data subset
Data masking
Data generation
Defines parameters and parameter values for connections, criteria, and source or target owners.
Plan
Data masking
Data subset
Data generation
Defines data subset, data masking, or data generation operations. Generate a PowerCenter workflow from a plan. Define a plan in the
Execute
view of a project.
Policy assignments
Data masking
Assigns policies to the project. When you assign a policy to a project, the project receives the data domains and the data masking rules in the policy.
Profile
Data discovery
Suggests the primary keys, relationships, and data domains in a source based on source data and metadata. Define a profile in the
Discover
view of a project.
Rule assignments
Data masking
Data generation
Defines which data masking or generation rules apply to a source column.
