Masking algorithms overview list

All created Masking algorithms can be viewed on this Masking algorithms overview list screen.

Only basic information is shown so you can identify Masking algorithm at a glance. It contains a table detailing every created Masking algorithm, showing: Name, Fundamental data and Note.

Overview will be by default ordered by Name. There is a possibility to change the order of all columns descending or ascending. When list of created Masking algorithm is displayed user can select one Masking algorithm row to do next actions:

If there are no masking algorithm, the masking algorithm overview list is empty.

Main parameters for every of the masking algorithms:

  • Name - automatically filled with masking algorithm name
  • Fundamental data - automatically filled with fundamental data joined to the masking algorithm.
  • Note - automatically filled with additional note

Advanced options

On right upper corner there is the Advanced options button, where you can filter view of Masking algorithm overview list.

Advanced options Figure 2: Advanced options

User can choose options to filter data in the overview:

  • Fundamental data - name of Fundamental data
  • Name - name of Masking algorithm
  • Note - Masking algorithm note
  • Has note - possibility to choose:
    • Yes - Masking algorithms with Note
    • No - Masking algorithms without Note

To clear all inserted filters in Advanced options, choose Clear button.
To apply inserted filter data in Advanced options, choose Commit button. A filtered data view will be displayed in the table.
To cancel changes in Advanced options, choose Cancel button.

Create masking algorithms

To create a masking algorithm, click on the Create masking algorithm button in the top right corner.

Create masking algorithm screen will be open and the following information can be entered:


  • Name - Masking algorithm name
  • Fundamental data - select fundamental data from drop-down list
  • Note - Note related to entered masking algorithm (optional)

Edit masking algorithms

The edit masking algorithm page allows the user to change specification properties. All fields are amendable.

Delete masking algorithms

If masking algorithm is no needed user can select on masking algorithm overview list one or more masking algorithm rows, by using checkboxes, to Delete masking algorithm.

A confirmation message appears before deleting. After confirmation, masking algorithm folder will be deleted and it will no longer show on masking algorithm overview list.
