Assigning a Standard Masking Rule

Assigning a Standard Masking Rule

You can assign a standard masking rule to a target column. Assign masking rules from data domains or policies to one or more columns in the project source that you want to mask.
  1. In the project, click
    Define | Data Masking
    to access the
    Data Masking
    view.
  2. Select a column to assign a masking rule to.
  3. If the
    Domain
    is blank for the column, click the
    Policy
    column and choose a policy that contains the data masking rule that you want to assign.
  4. Click inside the
    Rule
    column to view the list of available rules.
    The data domain preferred rules appear at the top of the list. The other rules in the policy appear at the bottom of the list.
  5. Select a masking rule. If you choose substitution masking rule, you can specify the rule assignment parameters. If you choose mapplet or advanced rule, you can assign the rule columns to the columns in the project.
  6. Click
    Save
    for each column that you update.
  7. If you want to update a masking rule assignment, select another masking rule.
    If the masking rule contains assignments, the
    Impacted Objects
    dialog box appears with the list of affected plans, columns, and data domains.
  8. To download the list of affected columns and plans, click

    , and save the .csv file.
