Set fields to a specific value during a data deployment
When deploying Data, it would be nice to be able to set field values. It could be just to null them or set a value. It could be part of the configuration or data masking.

Big +1 on this as well as Daniel's comment. Would be great to be able to fine-tune data masking. For example, set ranges for integers or Char length for text/strings. Creating test data, as opposed to just masking existing data (where values are present) would be a big win.

I add my vote to this. We have a number of use cases where we would like to specify values into fields for testing and also to possibly clear out fields that we know will fail e.g. the field is a picklist and some records might have inactive values, so clearing or selecting a standard value would be useful

+1 on this!
It would be great to be able to specify values or patterns while masking data. Similar to the "Levels of Masking" feature of Salesforce Data Mask: https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=data_mask_masking_types.htm&type=5

Being able to set a fields to a specific value when seeding sandboxes would be most helpful . . . Our use case is to be able to set all contact/lead/custom object email fields to a test email address.
