A so called salt is used in anonymize functions. This salt is stored in .salt file in the project directory by default and must have permissions 600. Path to this file can be configured in project.sh setting file by EVL_ANON_SALT_PATH variable.

To generate a new salt, or regenerate an existing one, for given <project_dir> (or current folder), run the command line utility

evl anon salt regenerate [<project_dir>] [-v|--verbose]

or click on Regenerate Salt button in Anonymization view in EVL Manager graphical user inteface.

Important: Be careful to regenerate existing salt file, as you lost the previous one, and then you cannot get the same anonymized output.
