How to mask a parameter with the colon parameter?

Hi,
In the sequenced transactions > parameter masks section of the AMD configuration, we are able to mask any parameter (as to encrypt password for instance).
I am trying without success to hide the following parameter: login:loginForm:password=*****
I believe there are some characters that are not supported (like the ':')?
How to do it then?

I already tried:

password=*,

login:loginForm:password=*,

login\:loginForm\:password=*,

login%3AloginForm%3Apassword=*

Patrick,

Indeed, colon is not supported in here.

Please log a support ticket so we can work o n this with Dev.

This is a limitation of the current design. While it cannot be easily removed due to potentially large impact, the first of the masks you mentioned (password=*) should work fine.

Could you provide the configuration and a sample HTTP request containing data to be masked (e.g. with the actual password manually masked by the customer)?

Hi Adam,

I am not on site anymore so can't provide any of your requested samples.

Indeed the password=* should work fine, but that was not the case. Tried different things without success and the content-type monitoring should cover this request.
