Hi all,

is it possible to mask text files EBCDIC encoded?

I saw into the connector creation form the "VSAM (EBCDIC encoding)" in this doc page: https://docs.delphix.com/docs51/delphix-masking/masking-engine-user-guide/understand-and-manage-the-...

Thank you.

Hi Gianpiero,
A mainframe dataset in EBCDIC encoding can be masked by Delphix. it won't be accurate IMO to call it a "text" file as it has a separate structure. Users can mask most VSAM, QSAM types of datasets, they need to be moved to an OSS/ SFTP directory for Delphix to connect. The user will also need to provide the associated COBOL copybook in order to parse the VSAM,

Thanks
