We're pleased to announce the certification of the E-Business Suite 12.2 Data Masking Template for the Data Masking Pack with Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c.

You can use the Oracle Data Masking Pack with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c to mask sensitive data in cloned Oracle E-Business Suite environments.  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.   

You may scramble data in E-Business Suite 12.2 cloned environments with EM13c using the My Oracle Support Note and template:   

What's New with Data Masking for EBS 12.2 and EM13c?

Online Patching with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 introduces the use of the Oracle Database feature Edition-Based Redefinition and editioning views.  The following updates occurred as part of this certification effort for compatibility with editioning views:

  • A new data masking template for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2
  • New enhancements to the Data Masking Pack delivered with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c
What does masking do in an Oracle E-Business Suite environment?

Based upon the knowledge of the Oracle E-Business Suite architecture and sensitive columns, application data masking does the following:

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

    Is EBS 12.2 Data Masking pack going to be certified with EM 13.3? We were advised to upgrade from EM 13.1 to 13.3 to resolve SSL/certificate vulnerability, but now we could not import EBS Data Masking template to OEM 13.3. We were able to import the ADM but it won't show up on the ADM dropdown list when we try to import the Data masking template.

    Rachel - Thanks for the inquiry.

    We currently plan to certify the EBS 12.2 Data Masking Template with EM 13.3. Due to other higher priority projects this certification has been delayed.
