Example table

Table Users

Only FirstName, LastName and Email could be masked. DateOfBirth will be skipped.


  1. Create a data model on the BizDataX Portal.

  2. Import Portal data into the BizDataX Package Executable project in the BizDataX Designer to create a data model in it.

    • Use the following settings:
      • Read-only symbol Read-only for the primary key
      • Read-write symbol Read-write for columns you want to mask
      • Skip symbol Skip for columns you don't want to mask
  3. Build the project to generate table masking activities and start working.

  4. Check available BizDataX masking activities in the Toolbox, for example some activity from the BizDataX Pick Data From List group, and create a masking workflow.

  5. Additionally, use package steps and parameters in the masking workflow.

  6. Additionally, update the handler settings based on the database used. See database handler page of the used database for more details.

  7. The execute the created masking workflow, click Debug -> Start Without Debugging (or CTRL+F5). A console window will appear and, within seconds, the process will be done. Check the database to confirm.
