I am using FDM 4.6 and when we do mask run and if it fails in between how can we resume the same run again
is there any way to re-run the masking file from where it got failed ?
Can anyone help me on this!!
Thanks in Advance.
For Database masking, you can re-start from the point where masking failed.
In the FDM mapper, you can see a Restartability tab. Please find the notes on this topic below.
Specify the Restartability OptionYou can set the restartability option for the mask run. If a masking job fails, the restartability option allows the process to start from the same point where it failed. A column in the table (which you want to mask) is used to set a flag to indicate rows that have been masked. If no existing column is specified, Fast Data Masker attempts to add a character column (de_ident_ind) that includes NULL to use as a restart flag.
Note: This option is used only for database masking. Also, ensure that the column that you want to use to restart the masking job includes the values as NULL, not any other values.
1. Click the Restartability tab.2. Click in the Restart Column cell.A drop-down list containing all the columns for the masked table is displayed.3. Select the appropriate column that you want to use for restart.4. Select the Mask Has Restartability option at the bottom.
You have successfully specified the information to restart the masking job in case of a failure. You can now specify the masking options.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your update and i have one more question
in the above case, if i want to rollback the data which was already masked what will be the approach.
is there anyway to rollback the data through FDM (as it was failed in between run and data also masked for some records till it failed)
If you want roll back if the run fails, then just don't use restart-ability option.
