Issue/Introduction

 

We are masking with FORMATENCRYPT1 and we don't get the same result when we use « Ignore first nn characters » and « Ignore last nn characters ». In a .txt file.

 

Examples of masking : 

 

12345678 -> FORMATENCRYPT1 -> result -> 39111820

 

atlas12345678E -> FORMATENCRYPT1 with Excludes first 5 and exclude 1 last ->  result -> atlas57425441E

 

We should get the same result.

 

 

 

 

 

Environment

Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution

 FastDataMasker-4.8.155.0.zip fixed the issue. 

Additional Information

Workaround: User can use general substring functionality instead of ignore start/last characters functionality which is specific to FORMATENCRYPT1.
