Masking Algorithm Name and API Name (KBA1819)

 

All algorithms have a Display Name and an Internal Name. For the out of the box algorithms this is set manually and over time changes lead to names being diverged.  

Issue

The differences in the names normally do not cause an issue except when using the Masking API, which uses the Internal Name. 

Resolution

The table below helps to map the Internal Name and the Display Name.
