Changes from Version 1

New Syncable Objects

We added the following new syncable objects in 5.3. Refer to the main documentation for more information on what they are, and how to use them.


We also added the following new syncable algorithms in 5.3.

  • MIN_MAX (

Key per Algorithm

In pre-5.3, a global key for the engine was used by all algorithms that required a seed to determine the outcome of masked values. This included algorithms such as Lookup and Binary Lookup. Thus, in 5.2, exporting a Lookup Algorithm would automatically export the global encryption key as a dependency. In this release, we allow each algorithm to have its own independent key, exported as a part of the algorithm. Refer to the Key Management section for more detail.

Changed Model of Import Status Reporting

In 5.2, the import status looked like this:

"objectIdentifier": {
"keyId": "global"
"objectType": "KEY",
"importStatus": "SUCCESS"

Starting in 5.3.0, the import status of an object has extended to include the id or name it has imported into to reduce any confusion introduced with IntegerIdentifiers. For more information on the reason for this change, refer to Logic Behind Overwrite of IntegerIdentifier and StringIdentifier. For examples on what it now looks like, refer to the Example User Workflow section.

Changed Granularity of Transactions for Import

Starting in 5.3, an import of however many objects is performed as an atomic execution rather than using per-object atomicity. This means that the execution will either succeed at importing all objects or fail and import none at all. Refer to the Error Handling of Import logic flow diagram for more information.

Filter for /syncable-objects

Now that we have a large list of syncable objects, we have added a new feature for filtering based on the object type. Refer to the Endpoint page and the Example User Workflow section for more information.

Async Endpoints

Exporting a large MASKING_JOB with many dependencies can potentially take a long time. So we have decided to provide a new endpoint that exports and imports the objects asynchronously. Refer to the Endpoint section in the main documentation and the Example User Workflow page for more information.
