In FDM 184.108.40.206, while masking the backslashes in the data are deleted. How to handle the \ (backslashe) in the masking data? Can FDM leave the backslashes as is and don't mask?
Release : 4.9
Component : CA Test Data Manager
Defect and backslash is not escaped with another backslash which caused the issue
Right now there is no possible way to ignore \ and \\ in the masking data. Need to escape the special characters with \ (backslash) and use the FDM version FastDataMasker-220.127.116.11.zip or above The below are the examples with escape character which should work with the shared patch FastDataMasker-18.104.22.168.zip:
. \" translates to "
. \| translates to |
. \\ translates to \.
Anything else translates to incorrect escape sequence which usually leads to dropped \ character.
