This section is intended to walk a developer through several workflows using the Delphix Extensible SDK, such as creating a new algorithm or driver support plugin and installing it on a Delphix Masking Engine.

In order to develop and deploy driver support plugins, you will interact primarily with two tools - the Masking API client, and the Masking Extensible SDK. The Masking API client is a long-standing feature that allows interactive execution of API operations on the Delphix Masking Engine, while the Masking Extensible SDK is a software package created specifically to aid in driver support development.

Outline for a Guided Tour

By following the steps in the outline below, you can tour the basic functionality provided by the Extensible Driver Support feature and Extensible SDK.

  1. Create a driver support plugin by choosing one of two options:

    1. Building the sample driver support project
    2. Creating and building your own driver support project
  2. Test the driver support plugin using maskScript

  3. Install the newly created plugin on the Delphix Masking Engine

  4. View and manage the plugins on a Delphix Masking Engine using the API Client
