Oh my, it has been a while since my last post .. and feel that there may be more than one in addition to this one.
So recently I was working with a Planning application that SPARC'ed me to write this post ;)
Not sure how many know, but in version 220.127.116.11 there was change made to the MaxL grammar that now allows for the export of data to be made anonymous!
The MaxL export data statement includes grammar you can use to make
exported data anonymous, wherein real data is replaced with generated
values. This removes the risk of sensitive data disclosure, and can be
used in case a model needs to be provided to technical support for
reproduction of certain issues.
Here is the 18.104.22.168 Technical reference: link
export database <dbs-name> ... data anonymous
Description: Export data in anonymized format. Anonymization removes the risk of
sensitive data disclosure, and can be used in case sample data needs to
be provided for technical support. Essbase replaces real data values
with 1, for each value in the block.
These are the railroad diagram for each ASO & BSO, and enjoy exporting data for analysis, support, performance testing, etc.
