This function masks all characters before the @ character. Two methods are available: By character and From a list of values.

This function only applies on Strings.

This function requires an extra parameter.

Option Description
Method When using the By character method, this function masks what comes before the @ character with a character.

When using the From a list of values method, this function masks what comes before the @ character with one of the values from the specified list.

Extra parameter This function requires an extra parameter.

When using the By character method, the extra parameter must be a character. If you specify an invalid extra parameter, like a string, a list, multiple characters or a digit, all characters before the @ character will be masked with X characters by default.

When using the From a list of values, the extra parameter can be a comma-separated list of values or a path to a file containing a list of values. If you do not specify an extra parameter, all characters before the @ character are removed.

In the first example, all characters before the @ character are masked with the user-defined characters.

In the second example, all characters before the @ character are masked with one of the values from the user-defined list.

Input value Method Extra parameter Example of masked value
johnsmith@company.com By character "p" ppppppppp@company.com
johnsmith@company.com From a list of values "z,x,c,h" xxxxxxxxx@company.com
