Microsoft Sql Server

Permissions

The user masking the database should have dbo permissions in the database targeted for data masking.

Powershell module dependency

To retrieve DDL information from Microsoft SQL Server, Datprof Runtime uses a PowerShell module. 

In time Microsoft has replaced the original "SQLPS" module by the "SqlServer" module.

As of version 4.0 the SqlServer module is delivered with Privacy and does not need to be installed manually.

For this, Microsoft PowerShell version 5 or higher is required.

Linux systems

When using Runtime on a Linux system, PowerShell must be installed and also the "SqlServer" module needs to be installed manually.

For installing powershell on a Linux system see the Microsoft documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/nl-nl/powershell/scripting/install/installing-powershell-core-on-linux.

To install the required Sqlserver module execute this:

  • Open a PowerShell window on your system, either as the user running Runtime or as root
  • Install the module with the command: Install-Module -Name SqlServer
