Step 3: Start Masking Records

Data Masking Execution

Before starting the data masking process, you’ll need to check a few things.

Ensure that the DM System Admin Permission Set is assigned to the user.

Note: If you are going for Bulk Deletion, then clone the “DM System Admin” permission set. The “DM System Admin Clone” permission set should have “Bulk API Hard Delete” system permission enabled. In Custom Metadata Types, the value of “Use Bulk API” should be “TRUE”.

Step 1: Initiate the Data Masking process

Click on ‘Data Masking’ on the Configuration page to initiate the data masking process.

Step 2: Decide whether to ‘Mask All’ or ‘Mask Specific’ records

Once you click on the ‘Data Masking’ button, you will see two options with radio buttons

Mask All: Masking of All records

Mask Specific: Masking of  Specific object records


‘Mask All’ processes all objects that are added in the object masking and contain records.


Click on the ‘Finish’ button to start the masking process for your batch.


‘Mask Specific’ allows you to select specific objects to be masked from multiple objects that are added in object masking.


Click on the ‘Next’ button.


Click on the ‘Finish’ button to begin the masking of the batch.




The masking cycle is now complete. You can check on the status of your execution in the ‘Execution Tab’.
