That is one of the issues we are looking to solve... but, I get ahead of myself.<br /><br /> &nbsp;As you might have guessed, my name is Michael Torok. I am the Director of Knowledge and Community here at Delphix. What does that mean?Mainly, I am your point of contact for knowledge base ( and community ( questions and concerns. I have been working with my team to put together a more cohesive experience for you, our partners, customers, and the Delphix team. Some of that is backend engine type of tweaks (we’ve started tagging our knowledge content more consistently, we’re looking at successful and failed search results to help you find what you need) and others have and will be more obvious (we’ve reorganized the knowledge articles and introduced a cohesive style for articles going forward). Those two parentheticals focus on our Knowledgebase system... but, the community is headed into brand new waters.<br /><br /> We will be migrating our community to a new platform. Our new platform will allow us to better highlight you, our engaged members, and provide a platform that can grow as we become the destination for DataOps. You will be able to blog about your experiences and share your wins with the larger community. We are definitely not looking to take away our support function, our ‘just in time’ fixes; you will still be able to reach us through the discussion functions of the new site. But, we wanted to move to a place that was not just the same pattern of ask, get an answer, go away until you have another question. At the same time, I have had many internal conversations here at Delphix, and I believe you will see even more engagement than ever before from our side. We will answer, but we want to be much more.<br /><br /> We want to be your destination.<br /><br /> We encourage you to make our new community a place where you provide your expertise and look to grow your knowledge with other member’s experiences. We want you to be the stars.<br /><br /> Ever wanted to blog about your experiences as a DataOps professional? Feel free to do so here. Have a difficult rollout planned and looking for suggestions from others who have faced the same thing? Let us be the location for that query. How did you take your DataOps journey to the next peak? How did you get your organization to adopt Delphix in the DataOps stack and how do you deliver data on demand to your customers (internal or external)? Share and learn here.<br /><br /> Have an idea for the product? Create an idea in our ideation portal and vote it up. See other people’s ideas and vote for them. Ideas will be a main way to get your needs addressed in the product and to see where we are heading. Vote for the ideas that you need and watch as we incorporate them into the product.<br /><br /> Are you looking to roll your own? Have you delved into the toolkits, created your own connectors, explored our open source projects? Tell us. Show us your work. Share your git repo. We want to celebrate with you.<br /><br /> Connect with your peers and professionals you admire. Let us help you build the right solutions in your environments; help us connect you with partners and augment your experience with the right additions; help us get the word out about our open source projects; and, help us organize your next DataOps event. We want to empower you to start local meetups and we’ll provide the digital space to get that going. Your success is our focus.<br /><br />’s coming and will live at this same URL.

Unfortunately I have to work with at least 2000 tables so it would be very time consuming doing manually by using the Masking UI. So I am trying to use the regex (column level), profiler and profiler job. Still it does not work. I can not run multiple profiler jobs with different masking algorithm to the table.<br /><br />Would you please advise me on this issue?.<br /><br />Thanks a lot.<br /><br />Best regards.<br /><br />Rafael Antonio<br /><br />&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; question complete 3 2 1 comment 7888626 What code changes to be done to connect to Delphix VDB 2019-05-27T08:53:10Z 2019-05-23T06:08:27Z manikesh.verma manikeshverma <p alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">If QA folks are testing UI based application in UAT, in UAT application can connect to only one VDB snapshot of Delphix, this is simple case, how will we deal when same application in UAT has to be tested by different QA folks and they want to use their own VDB snapshot, how this case will work?</p><p alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">Are we going to have different instance of UAT application or VDB is only for integration tests where each one can run on its own feature branch?</p>I read so many blog of Delphix but somehow not getting this clarity that we configured Delphix on our DB, using portal we created VDB but how each developer/QA will use? do we have to modify the code to connect each instance?<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /> question complete 4 2 1 comment 6951306 I am a java developer.I am very new to Delphix.How can i use Delphix with Java WebApplication 2019-05-27T08:42:14Z 2016-03-12T13:46:28Z Gundamaiah A gundamaiah_a I am a Java Developer and very to new Delphix.From where can I start learning Delphix.<br />Also How can I &nbsp;Integrate Delphix with java Web Application. question complete 21 5 1 comment 7889339 Delphix with Exadata 2019-05-25T22:32:32Z 2019-05-25T04:35:58Z WiSH vishal_aow95og2r4aos I was going thru lot of documents and community forums.

By popular demand, I going to start a short series on using the Delphix python module, "delphixpy". If you have been following my work any time over the last two years and have downloaded the <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link:">Landshark environment along with Delphix Express</a>, then you have been a recipient of the benefits&nbsp;of delphixpy.<br /><br />In short, delphixpy is a way to call the Delphix API from within python so that you can leverage all that object oriented goodness that python provides. This also allows you to treat json as dictionaries and many other powerful things of python. I have posted three common examples for DevOps, CI/CD, and Enterprise Automation shops and did try to meticulously comment them. I have recorded an intro video where I walk you through getting your Landshark environment setup to run the scripts and run the examples against a Landshark environment so that you can easily follow along where ever you are.<br /><br />There will be much more information to come very soon, we are just getting started! (I apologize in advance for my repetition of the word "neat." It is so weird, but I never realized that I even use that word!)<br /><br />You can get my examples from GitHub&nbsp;<a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a><br />You can post questions, etc on the Delphix Community Site <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a><br />Landshark and Delphix Express download and setup instructions&nbsp;<a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a><br /><br /><div class="video-container"><iframe src=""></iframe></div><br /> <br />Summary of preparation commands:<br /><br /><ol><br /> <li>ssh into the Landshark LinuxTarget as the delphix user.</li><br /> <li>assume root: su -</li><br /> <li>yum install git -y</li><br /> <li>pip install virtualenv</li><br /> <li>exit root (you should now be the delphix user again)</li><br /> <li>git clone&nbsp;<a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//githubcom/CloudSurgeon/delphixpy-examples"></a></li><br /> <li>virtualenv --system-site-packages ~/landshark</li><br /> <li>source ~/landshark/bin/activate</li><br /> <li>pip install --upgrade -r ~/delphixpy-examples/requirements.txt</li><br /> </ol> article 11 3 1 comment delphix, delphix express, landshark, python, delphixpy 7877472 What is vFile? 2019-05-09T21:32:54Z 2019-04-19T09:22:39Z Bohdan bohdan_id54dz7tv7a7f Hi, everyone)))<br /><br />What is <b alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">vFiles</b>?
