SSN and Date of Birth on Various Financial Aid Sub-Pages are not Available for Masking in Page And Field Configurator (Doc ID 2880528.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 25, 2024

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Sensitive data fields such as SSN and Date of Birth display on various pages within the Financial Aid module. When attempting to use Page and Field Configurator to mask this data, the process works for many pages but not all. The following is the identified list of pages where the fields are not available to be mask. Please note this may not be the full, comprehensive list within Financial Aid, and the list is not intended to cover other modules outside Financial Aid.

The common thread with these pages is they are all sub-pages within a component, where the masking works as expected on the "main" page of the component. For example, on the 2022-2023 ISIR File Data component, the 'Original SSN' field on the main page is able to be masked, but the problem is seen with the pages/records/fields behind any of the hyperlinks.

The expectation is that extremely sensitive data fields, such as SSN or Date of Birth, should be able to be masked on any page where they are displayed within the application.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Enterprise Components > Page and Field Configurator.
  2. Add new value for Component Name ISIR_23_IN_SRCH, market Global, configuration type Masking.
  3. Click Select Fields, with Field Source set to Primary Page, and Primary Page set to 01 - ISIR Inbound Load Summary.
  4. Observe SSN fields in the list available.
  5. Change Field Source to Secondary Page, and note the only value available in the Secondary Page dropdown is ISIR_01_IN_HSEC. (For example, ISIR_23_IN_1SEC, which is the page behind the 'ISIR Data 1' link, is not available.)
  6. In the Page Fields list, note no sensitive fields such as SSN are included in the list.
