Synchronizing Masking Jobs & Universal Settings Across Engines
In 5.2 we introduced the ability to synchronize Masking Algorithms between engines to ensure consistent masking, regardless of the engine executing the masking. In 5.3 are expanding the list of syncable objects to include:
The sync of objects is possible through improvements to several sync API endpoints, including:
This expansion of syncable objects ensures that users can sync their Masking Jobs and all the objects necessary for that masking job to execute successfully - regardless of the masking engine it lives on, allowing for easier scaling of Delphix Masking across the enterprise. Please see Managing Multiple Masking Engines for more details.
Support for Kerberized Connections
In 5.2.4 we added support for Kerberos for our Oracle Masking Connector. In 5.3 we have expanded the list of connectors that support Kerberos to:
To enable Kerberized connectors your engine must be configured properly configure Kerberos and you must configure your masking Connectors for Kerberos. Kerberos can be enabled by going to the Advanced mode on Oracle, SQL Server & Sybase. Please see Managing Connectors for more details.
New API Endpoints
In 5.2 we released an all-new set of API endpoints allowing for the automation of many masking workflows. In 5.3 we have expanded this list of API endpoints around Algorithms, Users, Roles, File Upload, System Information, Login, Rulesets, and Connector. Below are the net new API endpoints:
Delete algorithm by name
Get algorithm by name
Update algorithm by name
Randomize key by name
Get all users
Delete user by ID
Get user by ID
Update user by ID
Get all roles
Delete role by ID
Get role by ID
Update role by ID
Update the rule set’s tables
Refresh the rule set
Test a database connector
Test an unsaved database connector
Test a file connector
Test an unsaved file connector
Get all asyncTasks
Get asyncTask by ID
Cancel asyncTask by ID
Delete all file uploads
Get version, etc.
Status for a table, file, or VSAM file
In addition to the net new API endpoints, we have improved pre-existing API endpoints. Some of the improvements include:
Addition of DB2 iSeries & Mainframe to connector endpoints.
Addition of Kerberos configuration on Oracle, SQL Server & Sybase connectors
Ability to have ruleset refresh drop tables
Support for XML file types
Addition of dataType to column metadata
