The Generate PAN masking activity allows you to generate permanent account numbers (PANs).
|Table of contents|
To use the Generate PAN masking activity, it must be placed inside a table masking activity or a similar activity that iterates over data. Once placed, select the property you want to mask, enter the total number of digits that the PAN should have and the number of first digits that should be skipped if value already exists.
In this example we want to mask numbers in the Account table with permanent account numbers, so first we place the Account masking activity into opened Package.xaml and put the Generate PAN masking activity within it. Once placed, we select the Number property, and enter
10 as the total number of digits that a PAN should have and
2 as the number of first digits that should be skipped if a value already exists.
