When reviewing an obfuscated parameter in the tracer tool it shows that corresponding value has been removed .


Following configuration are set to prConfig settings:

Purpose : alerts/parameterpage/obfuscatekeywords
Setting : AccountNumber;...;

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a test activity.
  2. Set parameter named AccountNumber/Password value to any constant string "1234".
  3. Turn on the Tracer tool and run the created activity.
  4. Check the parameter value for AccountNumber/Password, it is marked as [removed].

Root Cause

This is the expected behavior.


As per currently behavior, Pega obfuscate parameter value applies for both alert log as well as tracer log.

Obfuscation of a common parameter like 'Account Number' which is extensively used in certain frame works can hamper debugging efforts.

Hence FDBK-18226 request has been raised to enhance this feature.
