Need to perform Mainframe masking for the Main File where fields can contain either a name or an address.  The current method is to use the CSV file.  However, this method is failing.


The generic method that was created failed. 


TDM 4.2DB2Mainframe


Due to time constraints, this fix was hard coded specifically for the client that reported the issue.  The intent of development is to create a version that is generic and the generic version will be included in the next Mainframe GA release after September 19, 2017. 

If you have a similar Mainframe issue, please contact CA Support. You can open a case following this video. Ask support to determine if a generic version has been done for the GA version of the Mainframe software delivered after September 19, 2017.  If one could not be included, CA Support team will work with you and development to make sure this fix can be adapted to your environment.
