Date Scrambling on Infotype 41 Date Specifications

Oct 1, 2019 6:46:49 AM

Every implementation of our software can throw up unique test data masking requirements. In this blog, one of our senior consultants Adan Willemse explains how Infotype 41 data had to be accurately masked in the test system, without devaluing the quality of the test data. In years gone by, this would have had us reaching for the ABAP exit functionality to code a solution, but with Data Secure 3, powerful masking rules can be built by anyone with knowledge of the data model, without the need for programming skills.
