The Random Digits masking format generates random digits of length within a range. It pads to the appropriate length in a string, but does not pad when used for a number column. This format is a complementary type of Random Number, which is not padded.
- Start Length: The minimum number of digits each masked value should have
- End Length: The maximum number of digits each masked value should have
Supported Data Types
- Combinable: Yes
- Deterministic: No
- Reversible: No
- Uniqueness: Yes, however, if you do not specify a sufficient length range, you can run out of unique values within the range.
For a random digit with a length of [5,5], an integer from zero through 99999 is randomly generated and left padded with zeros to satisfy the length and uniqueness requirement.
