Generate business name

The Generate business name masking activity allows you to generate business names for specific countries.

Table of contents


To use the Generate business name 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. Next, enter the country code of the country you want the generated business names to be related to. Note that the country code needs to be a string value. Supported values are: CH (Switzerland), CO (Colombia), DE (Germany), HR (Croatia), US (United States of America).


In this example we want to generate US-related business names for the Company table. First we place the Company masking activity into opened Package.xaml and put the Generate business name masking activity within it. Once placed, we select the CompanyName property that we want to mask. Next, we enter "US" as the country we want the company names to be generated for.
