- The data remains in the database and is available when using direct queries on tables.
- A “base string” and number are used for compiling anonymous data. The base string is configurable and provides branding capabilities (e.g. you can use your company name for it).
Following table contains list of agent personal details (fields), used in reporting. In this example of anonymization, we re using base string “luware”
Anonymization, using base string “luware”
Anonymization and application of the base string is done directly in database using SQL Server Management Studio.
This is a disruptive task. Please create database backups and don't perform this during operation hours!
The script values are stored in the following locations
- [Reporting].[_SysSetup] table,
If [Reporting].[_SysSetup] setting is empty, original agent names will be left reports.
- [SetupKey] = ‘ANONYM_AGENT_NAME’,
- [SetupValue] = value of base string (is empty by default).
If a value is any other string (length>0), this string will be used as base string for anonymization.
Enable anonymization script
Enable Agent Anonymization Script
UPDATE ss SET [SetupValue] = ‘luware’ — replace it with base string value FROM [Reporting].[_SysSetup] ss WHERE [SetupKey] = ‘ANONYM_AGENT_NAME’
Disable anonymization script
Agent Anonymization Script
UPDATE ss SET [SetupValue] = ” FROM [Reporting].[_SysSetup] ss WHERE [SetupKey] = ‘ANONYM_AGENT_NAME’
Execute data loader
In both enable or disable anonymization cases above you have to execute the stored procedure (Dataloader Script) for changes to take effect:
