What is the difference between the GTSRC_REFERNCE_LOV and GTSRC_REFERENCE_LOV1 tables, as well as the HASLOV and HASLOV1 Functions?
Release : 4.10
The differences between the GTSRC_REFERNCE_LOV and GTSRC_REFERENCE_LOV1 tables in the Scramble database. Below is the explanation provided:
With the GTSRC_REFERENCE_LOV table, there were inconsistencies across databases and Mainframe masking. So, Engineering developed the GTSRC_REFERENCE_LOV1 table and the HASKLOV1 masking function to correct these inconsistencies. We now have consistency across all DBs and MF using HASHLOV1.
Another difference, HASHLOV1 allows you to use many buckets to mask, whereas HASHLOV uses one big bucket. HASHLOV1also has an additional parameter, that provides more flexibility:
It's always your choice on which masking function and which table/seedlist you want to use for what you're trying to accomplish.
For more information, see TDM Masking Functions and Parameter for details regarding the masking functions.
