Date Random Masking Parameters

Date Random Masking Parameters

To mask datetime values with random masking, either configure a range of output dates or choose a variance.
When you configure a variance, choose a part of the date to blur. Choose the year, month, day, hour, minute, or second. The PowerCenter Integration Service returns a date that is within the range you configure.
The following table describes the parameters that you can configure for random masking of datetime values:
Parameter
Description
Range
The minimum and maximum values to return for the selected datetime value. The date range is a fixed variance.
Blurring
Masks a date based on a variance that you apply to a unit of the date. The PowerCenter Integration Service returns a date that is within the variance. You can blur the year, month, day, or hour. Choose a low and high variance to apply.
