MySQL DB AnonymizationΒΆ

Mozillians uses the production database for testing on stage and dev. We provide a script to anonymize a database to remove some personal information for stage, and all personal information for dev.

  1. Using the script:

    $ cd scripts/mysql-anonymize
    $ python anonymize.py anonymize_dev.yml > anon.sql
    $ mysql < anon.sql
    

    Note

    Make sure your database is named mozillians. If it isn’t, you can change the name in the .yml file you are using, it’s clearly noted on the second line of each of the .yml configuration files.
