Issue/Introduction

We have the requirement from the team for file masking where we need to replace the blank values/fillers with some data. Can you please let us know if any masking function is available.

   We tried by un-checking the "Keep Nulls" check box in masking function. Still the masked file shows as blank/null.

Environment

Release : 4.9.1

Component : Fast Data Masker

Resolution

There is a dependency with the Keepnull and TRIMVALUES option. Please add TRIMVALUES option as N and run the masking.
 
NOTE: Null values are masked based on the masking function also. So, try with HASHLOV/FIXED/RANDLOV masking functions to verify this functionality.
