For example, you can run a profile on a flat file source in the Developer tool. You can import the profile into TDM. You can then use the profile information to apply masking rules to mask source data or to create a data subset in TDM.
Import the profile from within a project. You can run a single profile to identify multiple types of data. So a profile might contain data domain, primary key, foreign key, and column profile information. Select the types of profile information that you want to import.
Before you import a profile, import the metadata and the objects in the profile into the TDM repository. For example, before you import a data domain profile, the TDM repository must contain all the data domains that appear in the profile. You can import the data domains from the Model repository. You cannot view the profile after import if data domains with the same name do not exist in the TDM repository.
You can import profiles with table names that contain alphanumeric characters or the special character _.
