What does data masking do in E-Business Suite

Application data masking does the following:

  • De-identify the data: Scramble identifiers of individuals, also
    known as personally identifiable information or PII. Examples include
    information such as name, account, address, location, and driver's license
  • Mask sensitive data: Mask data that, if associated with personally
    identifiable information (PII), would cause privacy concerns. Examples include
    compensation, health and employment information.
  • Maintain data validity: Provide a fully functional application.

Due to data dependencies, scrambling E-Business Suite data is not a trivial
task. The data needs to be scrubbed in such a way that allows the application
to continue to function. The template works with the Oracle Data Masking Pack
and Oracle Enterprise Manager to obscure sensitive E-Business Suite information
that is copied from production to non-production environments.

will create an irreversibly scrambled version of your production database for
development and testing.

Is there a charge for this?

Yes. You must purchase licenses for the Oracle Data Masking Pack to use the
Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 template. The Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3
Template for the Data Masking Pack is included with the Oracle Data Masking Pack
license. You can contact your Oracle account manager for more details about
