FORMATENCRYPT1 - No masking for PackedSigned with decimal on Mainframe


Article ID: 211588

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


The FORMATENCRYPT1 masking function does not mask numeric fields with decimal.

I can't mask the following fields in a flat file on the :

MNT_SOLD_PRET   len(6)      type: PackedSigned:11,2  [decimal(11,2)]
TAU_PRIM_ASSC_VIE  len(4)  type: PackedSigned:7,4    [decimal(7,4)]

The returned result of the masking is identical to the initial unmasked value.

We are using version 4.9.127 of FDM on mainframe.


Release : 4.9

Component : CA Test Data Manager - Fast Data Masker


We have very limited support for the FORNATENCRYPT1 masking function on the TDM Mainframe side. Engineering has provided a couple of TDM Mainframe patches that include a fix for this functionality. 

If you are experiencing this issue, please open a support case and request a copy of and files, which are TDM Mainframe patches.
