Hi,

We have a below scenario for data masking name filed.
1) John$Doe to be changed to Adam$Sam
2) -John Doe to be changed -Adam Sam

We need few built in functions which can be used to mask a part of name before the special char or either side of the special character.

Currently we are trying to do it uing an EXIT module, but want to avoid writing exit module.

Please suggest an alternative.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Why do you think this is a db2 topic?

What is "IBM Optim"?

You will probably have to write something because external files will also need the same "masking". . .

I posted it under DB2 since I need to mask the data on DB2 tables.

IBM Optim is kinda ETL tool which helps in doing data masking.

Do NOT multi-post the same question in multiple topics.

The duplicate has been removed.

If you want this moved to some other part of the forum, post this in a reply and your topic will be relocated.

Specific to db2? What about vsam or sequential data that contains names?

The more info you provide, the better suggestions we can make.

I suspect that to get what you want, you will need to write code. Knowing what the product documentation says shoud surely help you. . .

Knowing a little about Optim, I can say with assurance that it is not limited to working with DB2 sources (we are currently looking at using it with IMS), although its internal data are held in DB2 tables.

IBM Optim does have data masking capabilities, but they cost extra.

We had the same situation as you, and chose to go the External Exit route.

This was easy to write in Cobol, and gave us the flexibility to do exactly what we wanted.

As it seems to be an IBM product the manual should be on the IBM website. Did you try googling for it. Loads of hits. Stop being lazy resurrcting old topics and do your own research.
