EBS 12.2 Data Masking Template Certified with EM 13cR3

Product Management Director

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 13cR3.

You can use the Oracle Data Masking Pack with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13cR3 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 mask data in E-Business Suite 12.2 cloned environments with EM13cR3 using the following instructions and the template:   

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, and address.
  • 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.

    Great to hear EBS 12.2 Data Masking Pack is now certified with OEM 13.3. Is it also certified with Oracle Database 19c? We are planning to upgrade our EBS Suite from 12.2.4 to 12.2.9 using Oracle Database 19c.

    Nan, Thanks for the feedback.

    To answer your question>> The EBS 12.2 data masking template is not currently certified with Database 19c.

    We are currently working on certifying Database 19c with the EBS 12.2 Data Masking template and the EBS 12.1.3 data masking template.
