The privacy levels help you to associate a confidentiality level to a Data asset.
To define or modify a privacy level, go to the data asset screen and then click Edit. A drop down list allows you to pick the appropriate level.
Default privacy levels provided
By default, sidecar provides 4 levels to define the privacy of the data. The information is stored in two fields, the level name and the level description.
Level name : Level 1 - Public
Level description: Public - everyone can see the information.
Level name : Level 2 - Confidential
Level description: Confidential - top confidentiality level
Level name : Level 3 - Restricted
Level description: Restricted - medium confidentiality level
Level name : Level 4 - Highly sensitive
Level description: Highly sensitive - Internal use
Customize your privacy levels
You can always customize the privacy levels. It’s possible to change the name and description or add/remove a level. To do so, you need to update the table [dbo].[Privacy_Level] (No screen is available at the moment to customize the privacy level).
The following fields are populated automatically:
[Privacy_Level_Id] : Primary key
[SYS_LastModified] : date of the insert or update
[SYS_LastModifiedBy] : SQL user that made the last modification
If you delete or truncate the table, you need to initialize the table
Info: [SYS_IsDeleted] needs to be set to 0
This column allows you to do a soft delete of a record ([SYS_IsDeleted]=1)
The record will stay in the table but will not be displayed in sidecar.
In case of error, you can revert the change by inserting the value 0.
