Enable the ability to transform CLOB / BLOB fields in Replicate

We encountered a limitation with Oracle source endpoint where we cannot execute transformations on CLOB / BLOB fields. 

We have a requirement where we have to encrypt / tokenize certain CLOB columns.

 

I would like to request a feature enhancement to allow transforming CLOB / BLOB columns in Replicate.

We have a similar issue,
we would like to be able use a transformation to take a CLOB, and transform it into a VARCHAR(x) (nominally 4,000) and replicate it into Azure Synapse.

Hello @Prabodh , @John_Roberts  copy @Shelley_Brennan ,

I think I found a workaround for the LOB transformation, see the link below. The source is PostgreSQL however I think it works for other source endpoints as well, eg Oracle source etc.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

John.
