Pipe Delimited CSV Files Resulting in a Comma Delimited CSV Obfuscated File

Issue:

The data that we get into to mask comes to us in many formats.  We do not have say over how it is presented to us, nor do we have a say on how we are going to give it back as a masked file.  The format that it comes in is the expected format upon its masked return. In this case, we have a "|" ("pipe") delimited file.  When we put this format into the Fast Data Maker (FDM), the output format is a comma.  This is not acceptable to our Client.

Environment:
Fast Data Masker from 4.0 GA
Cause:

The code did not take this requirement into account.  This is the first time that this requirement has been expressed.

Resolution:

This is fixed in the patch FastDataMasker-4.7.14.0.zip  Please contact Support if you have an earlier version than this one.  Please note that this should be in a GA Release dated after July 21, 2017.  Please verify with Support that it made into that GA.
