Scrub reads an x9 file in industry defined formats and applies user defined actions to remove proprietary and confidential information from the input file creating a new output x9 file. Scrub will also optionally apply replacement actions against the images attached to each item. The actions to be performed can be saved in a user defined scrub configuration file which is available for future reuse. Scrub has a standard list of available cleansing actions that can be selected based on your specific requirements.
Scrub uses an xml parameter file to define the actions to be applied to the input x9 file. This xml file is created and tested using our X9Assist desktop tool. This approach allows you to define, test, refine, and review these parameters on a repetitive basis against x9 files to ensure that your scrub definition produces the desired results. These xml definitions are stored by X9Assist in folder / Documents / x9_assist / xml / scrub /. X9Assist allows you to create as many of these definitions as you need to perform your desired scrub actions. The shared used of these xml parameter files between X9Assist and X9Utilities is a key part of our design since it provides the same experience between these environments.

|-outExtension:||Defines the output extension to be assigned to the created output x9 file when that file name is not specified on the command line; default is “new”.|
|-t||A summary text file will be created with a suffix of “_summary.txt” in the same folder as the input x9 file.|
|-x||A summary XML file will be created with a suffix of “_summary.xml” in the same folder as the input x9 file.|
