How to mask XML data

  • 1.  How to mask XML data

    Posted 07-17-2015 10:05 AM



       I need to find a way to mask data in XML HTTP streams that are monitoed by CEM.  I know that CEM can mask POST parameters, cookies, etc., but as far as I know there is no facility to mask XML.  I explored the possibiliity of writing an HTTP Analyzer plugin but my understanding is that this cannot modify the HTTP stream, it just returns data that has been extracted from the HTTP stream.  Is there any way to make CEM mask data in an HTTP stream?  I'm mostly concerned about XML but I may also need to mask a Flex formatted stream.



    Thank you in advance,

    Hi Sean,


    you can only disable "Capture Comprehensive Defect Details" globally (for all monitored transactions). If you need part of the data from either HTML or XML you can extract it using a HTTP plugin.
