I need to connect to my Netezza database in Fast Data Masker (FDM), but I am unable to find it within the database management system (DBMS) drop down list.
Steps to reproduce:
Expected result: I continue on to 'Save' and 'Connect' to my Netezza database profile connection.
Actual result: Under the 'DBMS' drop down list, I cannot find the Netezza database option.

Netezza is an officially supported data source for data masking and data subset. However, when FDM was enhanced to use a new mapper user interface, Netezza was accidently removed from the DBMS drop down list.

This issue was originally found in Fast Data Masker (FDM) release version 4.2. This issue has been resolved in FDM release version 126.96.36.199.
Since the issue has been resolved in FDM 188.8.131.52, we recommend upgrading to that version or higher. Then you will be able to see Netezza as an option in the DBMS drop down list.
