Random String

This type of masking generates random strings based on the selected format options. This masking is applicable on columns having string datatype.

There are five options based on which a string can be generated.

  1. Alphabetic Characters (Mixed Case) – This option generates random string of characters. The characters can be in all three case formats i.e., upper, lower and title case.

    E.g., with reference to below image, the data in Address_line_1 is masked with the random string of characters when opted for Alphabetic Characters (Mixed Case).

  2. Alphanumeric Characters – This option generates random string of alphanumeric characters. The generated value consists of both numbers, i.e., 0-9, and letters, a-z, and A-Z. In this case, the characters can be in all three case formats i.e., upper, lower and title case.

    E.g., with reference to below screenshot, the data in Address_line_1 is masked with the random string of characters when opted for Alphanumeric Characters.

  3. Upper Case Alphabetic Characters – This option generates random string of characters in uppercase format only.

    E.g., with reference to below image, the data in Address_line_1 is masked with random string of characters when opted for Upper Case Alphabetic Characters.

  4. Lower Case Alphabetic Characters – This option generates random string of characters in lowercase format only.

    E.g., with reference to below image, the data in Address_line_1 is masked with random string of characters when opted for Lower Case Alphabetic Characters.

  5. Printable Characters – This option generates random string of characters for masking value in a field. This type of masking supports all case formats and consist of all printable characters i.e., numbers (0-9), letters (a-z and A-Z) and special characters (@, #, etc.).

    E.g., with reference to below image, the data in Address_line_1 is masked with random string of characters which consist special characters, number, and letters, when opted for Printable Characters.
