Anonymize your SAP PI Test data

With GDPR it is increasingly important to be able to mask or anonymize your test data. If I’m a customer at your company it would probably not be a good idea that you are testing with my order. But if you can anonymize it so nobody will know that I ordered it, you can do all the testing that you want. Normally it is something that takes a lot of time to do and then you don’t do it. We want to make testing easy so you will use it.

We can see at customers that it is a problem, and have now created a feature to you in 10 minutes can anonymize your data for test cases. Check the video below where I’ll create a new test data from my SAP PI system, convert it and then have my options.

After this conversion, you can run the data on all your systems when you have upgraded or someone is updating the mappings used.

We will add some more functionality to it. Like, have a names like first, lastnames, streetnames. It will be a list that you can edit and add names that makes sense in your organisation.

Also, I’m considering how to handle Service Interfaces with marked as sensitive data. I ‘m considering to set a flag that you cannot test with the data. And need to create an anonomized test case for it. And there could probably also be some user role that can view the un-anonymized data, and use the studio.

The flow of developing the test case could also be improved, but I guess we will take it with some real sceanrios.

You can start using Figaf IRT for free. There is a free package where you can get access to use it to test SAP PI/CPI test cases.
