DataWorks allows you to classify data based on the value, sensitivity level, influence, and distribution range of the data. The management policy and development requirements vary for data of different sensitivity levels. This topic describes how to view and manage data sensitivity levels.

Background information

DataWorks allows you to classify sensitive data into different levels based on your management policy and development requirements. After that, you can create a sensitive data type based on the characteristics of the data, such as the purpose and the source, and configure the data identification rule for this type on the Data Recognition Rules page to effectively detect sensitive data. For more information, see Manage sensitive field types.

If you use Data Security Guard for the first time, a built-in template that contains four sensitivity levels is displayed on the Data classification and level page. You can create or delete sensitivity levels in the template as needed. If you have used Data Security Guard before, a sensitivity level template of the earlier version is displayed on the Data classification and level page.

Go to the Data classification and level page

  1. Log on to the DataWorks console and go to the Data Security Guard page. For more information, see Overview.
  2. Click Try now. The Data Security Guard homepage appears.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Rule Change > Data classification and level. You can view and edit the sensitivity level template.

Mange data sensitivity levels

The Data classification and level page provides an entry point for you to view the total number of categories for sensitive field types, data sensitivity levels, and sensitive field types. You can also edit the data sensitivity levels as needed. This section describes how to manage data sensitivity levels if you use Data Security Guard for the first time.

  1. Configure the basic information of the data sensitivity level template
    1. Click the Edit icon icon in the Actions column that corresponds to the data sensitivity level template.
    2. In the Set Basic Info step of the Template Edit dialog box, set the Template name and Description parameters. Template name dialog box
      Note The name can contain digits, letters, and underscores (_), and must be 1 to 30 characters in length.
    3. Click Next.
  2. Mange data sensitivity levels
    • In the Configuration level step, you can specify the name of each sensitivity level as needed. After that, the name of the sensitivity level that is associated with the sensitive field type is updated on the Data Recognition Rules page. Configuration level step
      Note The name of the sensitivity level must be unique. A greater sequence number indicates a higher sensitivity level. You can create up to 10 sensitivity levels.
    • Create a sensitivity level: Click the Create icon icon next to the last sensitivity level.
    • Delete a sensitivity level: Click the Delete icon icon next to the last sensitivity level. Before you delete a sensitivity level, you must delete all the sensitive field types that are associated with this sensitivity level regardless of whether the sensitive field types are published. Otherwise, the sensitivity level cannot be deleted. For more information, see Manage sensitive field types.

View details of the sensitivity level template

Click the View icon icon in the Actions column that corresponds to the sensitivity level template. On the Manage sensitive field types tab, you can view the information about sensitive field types and the categories for the sensitive field types.
