URL Masking

URL Masking

URL masking applies a built-in mask format to change URL data. Mask string datatypes with URL masking.
The PowerCenter Integration Service parses a URL by searching for the
://
string and parsing the substring to the right of it. The source URL must contain the
://
string. The source URL can contain numbers and alphabetic characters.
The PowerCenter Integration Service does not mask the protocol of the URL. For example, if the URL is
http://www.yahoo.com
, the PowerCenter Integration Service can return
http://MgL.aHjCa.VsD/
. The PowerCenter Integration Service might generate a URL that is not valid.
The PowerCenter Integration Service always returns ASCII characters for a URL.
