Address (AddressGenerator)

The Address generator replaces the source value with a random string based on the type of address data that the column contains.
The Address generator can be self-consistent or consistent with another column. You cannot configure differential privacy. It can be linked to other columns.
The metadata object is populated from AddressMetadata.
For the Address generator, you specify the type of address value that is in the source column. Here is the basic structure of a link object for the Address generator.
{
"schema": "string",
"table": "string",
"column": "string",
"dataType": "string", //MongoDB only
"metadata": {
"presetId": "string",
"generatorId": "AddressGenerator",
"encryptionProcessor": "x-on", //To use configured Tonic data encryption
"customValueProcessor": "string" //If custom value processor applied
"addressType": "enum",
"isConsistent": boolean,
"consistencyColumn": "string"
}
}

Example replacement

The following example replacement shows two linked columns that are assigned the built-in generator preset for the Address generator. One column contains city names, and the other contains zip codes.
Both columns have consistency disabled.
{
"name": "city,id",
"schema": "public",
"table": "locations",
"links": [
{
"column": "city",
"table": "locations",
"schema": "public",
"metadata": {
"presetId": "AddressGenerator",
"generatorId": "AddressGenerator",
"addressType": "City",
"isConsistent": false
}
},
{
"column": "id",
"table": "locations",
"schema": "public",
"metadata": {
"generatorId": "AddressGenerator",
"addressType": "ZipCode",
"isConsistent": false
}
}
]
}
