CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)



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.







Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution fixed the issue. 

Additional Information

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