Masking Does not masks the embedded elements



User has performed the masking in the following way:

fireflyAPI.set('masking', {'*':['p','.amount']});

and observed that embedded HTML elements are not masked.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Add masking script as part of fireflyAPI.ready

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.

The masking feature does not apply to the embedded (child) HTML elements by default. To mask the embedded (child) HTML elements you need to set elementMasking in fireflyAPI to true.


To mask the embedded (child) HTML elements, set elementMasking in fireflyAPI to true.
Also while applying the masking there is no need to specify the tag for which the masking needs to be enabled just the class name will do the magic.
So, the correct values to be inserted into fireflyAPI are :
  • fireflyAPI.set('masking', {'*':['.amount']});
  • fireflyAPI.set('elementMasking', true);
