When an exception occurs in a web request, the Flare client will pass on all request fields that are present in the body.
In some cases, such as a login page, these request fields may contain a password that you don't want to send to Flare. By default, Flare will replace the value any fields that are named "password" with "".
You can censor values of additional fields. If you use Laravel, you can put the names of those fields in the
reporting.censor_request_body_fields key of the
flare config file.
'reporting' => [
'censor_request_body_fields' => ['password', 'other_field'],
In non-Laravel PHP projects you can use call
censorRequestBodyFields on the Flare client. You should pass it the names of the fields you wish to censor.
// Where you registered your client...
$flare = Flare::register('YOUR-FLARE-API-KEY')
This will replace the value of any sent fields named "password" with the value "".
