To configure data masking in log forwarding:
  1. Go to System Settings > Log Forwarding, and configure a new or existing log forwarding profile.
  2. Set the Enable Masking toggle to the ON position.
    Select the fields to be masked in Masking Data Fields, and create a Data Mask Key.
  3. Click OK to save the log forwarding profile.
    The remote server will receive logs with the selected field values masked.
To configure log field exclusion in log forwarding:
  1. Go to System Settings > Log Forwarding, and configure a new or existing log forwarding profile.
  2. Set the Enable Exclusions toggle to the ON position.
    Add at least one log field to exclude.
  3. Click OK to save the log forwarding profile.
    The remote server will receive logs with the selected log field removed.
    Log field exclusion will occur even when the same log field is also configured to be masked using data masking.
