SEDCMD vs Transforms to mask data



When we use sedcmd command to mask data it is Indexed time extractions and when we use transforms to mask data it is search time extractions. Is it correct?

There are more transforms (indexed field extractions, ingest-time evals) which are done i  the ingesting pipeline. You can use them to modify data before indexing.

Please remember that when you have written data to index without masking it, the one can always figure it out as unmasked even you try any masking techniques on search time.
