This function masks the input value with a randomly generated universally unique identifier (UUID).

This function uses the UUID.randomUUID() method provided by Java. This Java method does not use a seed, meaning that if you run the job twice, the function generates different UUIDs.

This function is applied on Strings.

This function requires no extra parameter.

In the following example, the masked valued is a randomly generated UUID.
