Data masking for ingested WDS documents

We have a client request to provide capability to mask sensitive data from ingested documents.

This is to serve 2 purposes; i) general company wide data privacy requirements, ii) masking sensitive data from developers

If a function was available to mask during ingestion based on a JSON field or regex expression that would be useful.
