Row count mismatch for input and output file

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


Since we are using flat files, Fast Data Masker works for us.  However, we have noticed that with 4.1, when we put in 50,000 rows, we get a resultant file of 300,000 rows after masking.


The program was putting out 6 resultant rows for every 1 source row.  This is an error.


Fast Data Masker GA Version 4.1


This issues has been resolved in  Please ask Support for this version or higher if you encounter this error. Please note that this is NOT in the 4.2 GA version.  Please ask Support if it made it into the next GA Version after August 8, 2017.
