Using the Utility
The Genesys Care Log File Masking Utility has been designed as an executable .jar file. Opening the file through a supported Java Runtime Environment will display the main interface.

Using this interface, the user must provide three inputs:
- Regex File – The file containing regular expressions to determine which characters will be masked.
- Output Directory – The location where the Log File Masking Utility will place the processed log files. This must be a directory.
- Input Files – One or more files that will be processed by the Log File Masking Utility using the regular expressions found in the Regex File. This can be any plain text file.
Each input location provides a Browse button that allows the user to select a file or folder from the local file system.
Removing individual files from the Input Files list can be completed by selecting (or multi-selecting) files in the pane and clicking the Remove button. All files in the Input Files pane can be removed by clicking the Remove All button.
When all three inputs are provided to the Log File Masking Utility, the Go button will be enabled. Clicking the Go button will start the process of masking data. A status bar will show the tool’s progress. When the masking is completed, the processed files will be available in the Output Directory location with the suffix and extension _mskd.log.
