Data Domain Discovery Results

Data Domain Discovery Results

The data domain profile results show a list of source columns and possible data domains to assign to the columns. You can select which data domain candidates to use for data masking from the profile results.
To view data domain discovery results, close the profile and open it again. Click the
Profile | Data Domain
view.
Select a column and click on the
Data Preview
tab to view the source data of the selected column. The data viewer displays the first 200 records of columns returned in the data domain profile.
You can select rows and approve the data domain for each column. When you approve the suggested data domain for the column, you can assign the rules in the domain to each column in the data domain. You can assign the rules in the
Define | Data Masking
view.
After you are finished working on the data domain for a column, you can verify the data domain for each column in the
Data Domain
view. The
Verify
column is for tracking. It does not affect the data domain profile operation.
When you finish approving the data domains, you can mark the data domain classification as completed. Use this method to verify that you reviewed all the results. Completing the data domain classification does not affect any process.
The following image shows the data domain discovery results:
The data domain discovery results show the table name, column name, data conformance percentage, null value percentage, patterns, column name match, current data domain, profiled data domain, and status. The lower pane contains Properties and Data Preview tabs. The Data Preview tab shows the preview of data values.
The following table describes the columns in the data discovery results:
Column Name
Description
Table
Name of the table.
Source
Name of the column to mask.
% Data Conformance
The percentage of rows that contain metadata or data patterns that match the data domain.
% Null
The number of rows that contain NULL values in the source column.
Patterns
The number of data domain data or metadata patterns that match the column.
Column Name Match
Indicates if the column name is the matching data domain pattern.
Current Data Domain
Shows the previous data domain when you run the data domain profile more than once.
Profiled data domain
The data domain name returned from the latest profile run.
Status
Shows whether the data domain is verified or approved.
