Symptoms

All the VPD policies defined on a table are removed when the data stored in the table is masked via Data Masking. This behaviour can be easily tested as follows:

1. Create a VPD policy on a table
2. Run a Data Masking script against this table
3. Check whether the VPD policies still exist
