Does anyone know a way to anonymizing data in Alteryx? I have unique identifiers that function as keys in my current DB. When I publish data to Tableau server I want to be able to change these IDs so they are usable in Tableau but revertable to IDs in my DB. Any ideas?
The problem with, and actually the Raison d'etre, of most hashing algorithms is that they're designed to be one-way. String A gives hash value B, but given hash B you can't recreate String A. That's where encryption algorithms come in. They can both encrypt and decrypt data. They can also be difficult to implement. Luckily, @Ned, one of the founders of Alteryx, has a post where he shows how to encrypt data using a key. He also provided the workflow that does it.
