Before you use Sensitive Data Discovery and Protection (SDDP), make sure that you have activated SDDP and authorized it to access your data in services including MaxCompute, Relational Database Service (RDS), and Object Storage Service (OSS). After the authorization, SDDP can protect your data in these services and generates alerts for anomalous events.

After you activate SDDP, you must first authorize it to access your cloud assets on the page shown in the following figure.

Asset authorization
Note Currently, SDDP supports a 7-day free trial. You can select 7 Days (Trial) on the purchase page of SDDP to activate the free trial.

After asset authorization, you must authorize SDDP to access specific MaxCompute projects, RDS databases, or OSS buckets. For more information, see Authorize SDDP to access your data.

Note SDDP only scans authorized data for sensitive data and analyzes access logs of authorized resources to detect anomalous events. SDDP does not store any of your data.
