How to filter data out of JFR recordings with JFR scrub (Doc ID 2968594.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2023

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 19 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


With the default JDK configuration, JFR records event data into files. These events may contain sensitive information, such as usernames and passwords. Including this information can be problematic when sharing recording files with other parties, for example, software support. JDK Mission Control correctly warns if it detects suspicious-looking names but provides no means to remove the information. It is possible to create a custom configuration so as not to record sensitive data the next time, but users may not be aware of this possibility and may want to analyze data with complete information themselves.
