Name Substitution Example

Name Substitution Example

You want to mask employee names and you want to preserve the gender and nationality of the names in the masked data.
You create substitution masking rules to mask first names based on gender and nationality. Substitution masking replaces a column of data with similar but unrelated data from a dictionary. You use substitution masking to mask string data with realistic output. You use advanced masking to apply multiple masking techniques to a column.
Complete the following steps to create rules to mask names based on gender and nationality:
  1. Add a dictionary in Test Data Manager.
  2. Create a substitution rule that substitutes first names based on gender.
  3. Create an advanced masking rule to substitute first names based on nationality.
