The agent ensures any sensitive data such as credentials or tokens are scrubbed before shipping data to Sematext Cloud.
For example, launching a Python process with
MYSQL_PASSWORD arguments passed to it, would result in the command line metadata attribute being masked as following:
python daemon.py --password ******** MYSQL_PASSWORD ********
Sematext Agent automatically scrubs sensitive data if any of the following patterns are detected in the process' command line arguments. Matching is case insensitive.
