Masked Keyword Types must have values entered in a specific format, called a mask format. Fields for masked Keyword Types prohibit you from entering values that do not satisfy the mask format.
For example, a masked Keyword Type for Social Security Numbers may contain dashes as static characters and allow users to enter only nine numeric characters. In Mobile Access for iPad, the dashes will automatically display within the masked fields.
When you enter a keyword value into a masked Keyword Type field (e.g., while indexing keywords in the Upload module), OnBase automatically validates the keyword value to make sure it satisfies the masking constraints. Contact your system administrator if you have questions about a Keyword Type's mask format configuration.
