Profiling is one of the major components in Delphix Agile Data Masking. The objective of profiling is to identify the location of Non-Public Information (NPI) or sensitive data.

The Delphix Agile Data Masking profiler uses two different methods to identify the location of sensitive data:

  1. Search through the column names in the target database, by querying the database catalog (metadata).
  2. Look at the data itself using a sampling algorithm, to see whether there is any sensitive data. (This is especially useful for files, and comment and notes fields in a database, for example.)

After you have defined an environment and a connection for your data source, you can profile the data. To do so, you create a profiling job (see "Creating a New Profiling Job").
