This walkthrough explains how to create a custom masking activity in your BizDataX project.
If you have a big and complex main workflow, custom activities allow you to break down your workflow into small segments (activities) or to reuse the same activity multiple times in your workflows. Your main workflow will be easier to understand and manage.

|Using custom activities|
Select your project in the Solution Explorer. Right-click Add -> New item -> BizDataX group -> BizDataX Masking Activity. Enter a name for the new custom masking activity, for example
Note: naming the custom activity should be unique and should not be in conflict with other names in the project.
The Type selection dialog, as shown on Figure 1, appears. Select the table for which you want to create a custom masking activity and click OK.

Note: Make sure that in the properties of the added Masking block activity, there is a value
Masking in the Result field. If the Masking block activity is removed and replaced with some other activities, the first activity in the workflow must have the value
Masking assigned in the Result field.

The entire masking logic is implemented in the custom activity and is used inside the handler of the table.
