Delphix Compliance Services currently supports in-place masking, where the source data is also the end target. This is the most reliable masking process.
At its simplest, masking data follows three steps:
Securely Connect to Data: Connect Delphix to a data source.
Delphix Compliance Services will establish a connection with a data source, usually a staging dataset or an application sandbox. The connection is automatically established through OAuth or direct through use of a username and password.
Select Masking Rules: Customize the masking algorithm selection for a dataset.
To facilitate the creation of masking rulesets, Delphix provides a combination of predefined algorithms, customized algorithms, and a pre-set ruleset to reach a multitude of complex datasets.
Start a Compliance Job to Mask Data: Apply a ruleset to a connected dataset and execute a compliance job.
With a connection established and a ruleset defined, the last step is to run a masking job. A masking job requires a connector, a ruleset, and optional parameters. When a masking job is running, the status of the job can be monitored.
