What are the steps to deploy DataMasker?
Can DataMasker run in PROD (I hope NOT 🤞)
DataMasker is deployed in PROD, so that it gets copied into every refreshed sandbox org. To ensure that DataMasker NEVER runs in a PROD Salesforce Org, we have constraints built into it.
DataMasker uses Salesforce standards-based approach(isSandbox) when masking is initiated. It only runs if it detects that the Org is a Dev or a Sandbox Org.
No matter how masking is initiated – By clicking the ‘Run Masking’ Button or through the APEX or REST API – DataMasker will NOT run in a PROD org.

Appended is the REST response indicating that DataMasker execution is prohibited in Production Org.
