data anonymization/masking (typetree attribute + test mode)

There are 2 requirements that lead to this idea:

1.) external requirements like GDPR force us to anonymize/pseudonymize data in non-production environments
2.) A-B-testing would be much easier if we can mask dynamic attributes (e.g. timestamps)

This idea is a solution for both requirements: we want to have a boolean attribute in the typetree on each field like this:

[x] mask in non-production environments

And we want to be able to run the ITX engine in test mode (non-productive mode), which has the following property: for all fields that are enabled to be masked in non-production environments TX does not apply the mapping rule. Instead TX writes the following static data:

text fields: X
numeric fields: 0
date fields: 1970-01-01
boolean (e.g. xml): true

Padding and formats must also be applied, so that the output data is valid.

How will this idea be used?

This idea will be used in order to fullfil compliance and regulatory requirements. Another benefit will be simpler A-B-testing with less manual work, thus reduced costs and faster time-to-market.
