Has anyone used a REMAP_DATA  function to "transform" (or obfuscate)
data  as it is exported ?  This allows transformation of the data before
it gets written to the dump file.

How do you handle multiple tables that need to be remapped ?  Write a
separate remap function for each table and pass multiple REMAP_DATA
arguments ?


I've never tried this, only read about it  but am curious to know about
actual usage.

  We have to refresh a QA database from production (to have some real
data) but we need to exclude all the PCI/PII from the refresh (it
absolutely cannot be copied from Prod to QA). In addition, we have GG
replication on Prod so anything we do is subject to that.

  What would be your approach?

  My idea was rman duplicate, but those pci/pii tables rule this out.

Oh, GG cannot be used due to firewall restrictions, we only have
database ports and SSH from Prod to QA

any ideas?
