TDM-Does SQLFUNCTION masking routine work in File Masking?
Article ID: 187222
CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)
Does SQLFUNCTION masking routine work in File Masking? This didn't work while executing flat file masking.
Release : 4.8
Component : CA Test Data Manager
This functionality is not supported.
FDM really doesn't contain SQL engine so it cannot process SQLFUNCTION in file mode (also the main purpose of this mask). When it reads the SQL FUNCTION, all it does is that it takes Parm1 and sends it to a database server for execution. And because there is no database server in file mode, FDM cannot send it anywhere.
