There are times when it is necessary to test with or share data that has elements of personally identifiable information (PII). To comply with data privacy laws and prevent a data breach, you may need to provide data that reflects, and sometimes imparts, critical information, but still protects the PII.
This article focuses on IRI Workbench execution options for scripts based on the SortCL program language, which covers IRI Voracity ETL, CDC, SDC, pivoting and subsetting jobs, as well as its constituent product jobs; i.e.,
Note: This example demonstrates a more direct method of using IRI FieldShield or IRI Voracity to statically mask PII within structured MongoDB collections. Our older how-to-article on indirect data masking of MongoDB through export/mask/import from 2015 is here, and a newer method through MongoDB’s native driver support in CoSort v10 from 2018 is here.
One of the ways IRI RowGen builds realistic test data is through the formation and population of custom field values, such as phone numbers. In this article, we explain how to use the Compound Data Value (CDV) wizard in the RowGen GUI to build a set file containing real-looking, US phone numbers based on the North American Numbering Plan (NANP).
