Deprecated and Removed Features

Release 6.0.10.0

End of Life Notifications

The following features have reached End-of-Life in the 6.0.10 release:

  • Ruleset Edit - The Table Suffix, Add Column, Join Table, and List options were deprecated in the 6.0.3.0 release. These options have reached end of life in the 6.0.10.0 release and have been completely removed from the product. These options are the rarely used feature that can be achieved using the following alternatives:
    • If you were using the Table Suffix functionality, you can achieve the same results with a series of API calls (/table-metadata and /column-metadata endpoints).
    • For Add Column, Join Table, and List, you need to convert these settings to the equivalent Custom SQL configuration before upgrading to 6.0.10.0 release.

Release 6.0.9.0

End of Life Notifications

Delphix has been creating new and improved versions of our existing algorithms, thus, Delphix would like to provide formal notice of deprecation and planned End-of-Life (EoL) for the older algorithm versions. This is to inform our customers that planning should start for their transition to these updated algorithms.

Details of the transition can be found in the following Delphix Community Post.

Release 6.0.8.0

End of Life Notifications

  • Legacy Custom Algorithm (Mapplet) end-of-life. More information available in this Delphix Community Post.
  • SAP ASE (Sybase) 15.0.3 support end-of-life in 6.0.8

Release 6.0.7.0

End of Life Notifications

  • ESX 5.5 support will be end-of-life in 6.0.7
  • Masking Connectors: Db2 LUW and zOS v9, Db2 LUW and zOS v10, SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008 R2

Release 6.0.4.0

The following features were removed in the 6.0.4 release:

  • Job Scheduler - As of this release, Delphix has removed the Job Scheduler feature. The introduction of Masking’s REST API several releases ago allowed customers to schedule job executions using their preferred job scheduler. As a result, the integrated scheduler is seldom used.

The following features are deprecated as of 6.0.4 and will be removed in future releases:

  • FTP, SFTP, and mount upload for XML and Cobol formats - FTP/SFTP/Mount-based format import were the original modes for XML and Cobol files, since then, Delphix has added the ability to upload a format file, which is far simpler to set up. After the introduction of “upload”, we’ve seen a dramatic shift away from the legacy import modes in favor of the simplicity of “upload”.

  • Row Type Feature - Originally geared for limiting masking to subsets of rows within a column, this feature was seldomly used. Its functionality, if desired, can still be replicated via the Custom SQL feature.

  • Redundant Settings for ‘Edit Table’ under Rule Sets - Table Suffix, Add Column, Join Table, and List - These settings are redundant and can be replicated with the Custom SQL setting.

  • ‘HAVING’ clause from Masking API - Deprecating due to low use. This feature, if desired, can be replicated with Custom SQL.

Release 6.0.0.0

Deprecated Features

In this release the following features were deprecated:

Removed Masking Features: Please note that Excel files can still be masked by first converting them to one of Delphix’s supported file types (CSV, etc). Also, XML CLOBs can be masked by extracting their values into a table (example - using extractValue in Oracle).

  • Native XML CLOB masking: After upgrade, columns masked as XML CLOBs will have the NULL SL algorithm assigned.
  • DB2 9.1, 9.5, and other 9.x versions of LUW & Z/OS
  • “Create target” job option: After upgrade jobs using “create target” will be removed.
  • “Bulk data” job option: After upgrade, jobs using “bulk data” will be turned into non-bulk data jobs.
  • Native Microsoft Excel Masking: After upgrade, MS Excel connectors, rulesets and jobs will be removed.
