What edits do I need to make in my configurations to mask passwords while ingesting data to Splunk?

Like this in props.conf:

[app_json]
SEDCMD-password-anonymizer = s/password:'[^']+'/password:**********/

if we are using SEDCMD no need of transforms right?

You are calling out a second capture group, which you need to define:

[password-anonymizer]
REGEX = (?m)^(.*)Password:[^,],(.*)
FORMAT = $1Password:**********,$2
DEST_KEY = _raw

And I'm not sure, but if you have a multiline event, in order to get all the lines prior to the one you want, you may want to use:

[password-anonymizer]
REGEX = (?m)^([\s\S]*)Password:[^,],([\s\S]*)
FORMAT = $1Password:**********,$2
DEST_KEY = _raw

I haven't tried this myself, but that is what seems to be needed.
