XML Mask (XmlMaskGenerator)

The XML Mask generator runs a selected generator on values that match a user specified path expression.
For the XML Mask generator, there is a link object for each path expression value to assign a sub-generator to.
The generator does not itself support consistency or differential privacy.
The metadata object is populated from the XmlMaskMetadata object. It includes:
  • pathExpression, which is the expression that identifies the value to apply the sub-generator to.
  • The subGeneratorMetadata object, which identifies and configures the sub-generator.

Example replacement

In the following example replacement for the XML Mask generator:
  • The Name generator is assigned to the path expression //view/item-descriptor//@display-name. The value is in the format First Name Last Name (John Smith), and capitalization is not preserved. Consistency is disabled.
  • The Constant generator is assigned to the path expression //view//object-class. The constant value is object-class.
