    Hello,

     

    We are masking some csv file and we have a requirement to mask the birthday and the age field.

     

    How can we do this when masking a file?

     

    We tried masking the birthday and using SQLFUNCTION to calculate the age from : SYSDATE - BIRTHDAY but it does not work.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Francois, 

     

    For birthday and keeping original age you could use HASHDOB.

    Masking Functions and Parameters - CA Test Data Manager - 4.4 - CA Technologies Documentation  

    HASHDOB

    The HASHDOB function hashes a date, keeping the original age.

    Parameters: None

    Applies to: Date and Character

    Example: Date of birth is masked by hashing an existing date of birth. For example, the date in the column BIRTH_DATE is consistently masked (retaining the age) 2016-05-24 to 2016-05-28, 1999-12-16 to 1999-12-26. The following table shows the usage:
