If you no longer need to use the sensitive data protection feature to protect the sensitive data in a database instance, you can disable the feature for that database instance. This topic describes how to disable the sensitive data protection feature.

Prerequisites

You are a Data Management (DMS) administrator, a database administrator (DBA), or a security administrator.
Note To view the role of your account, move the pointer over the Profile picture icon in the upper-right corner of the DMS console.

Precautions

  • After the feature is disabled for a database instance, sensitive data on the database instance is not protected. The data classification information, data sensitivity levels, and masking rule configurations on the database instance are deleted. Proceed with caution.
    Note After the feature is disabled for a database instance, no modifications are made to the database instance or the data in the database instance. The database instance still runs as expected.
  • If you are charged for the feature based on the pay-as-you-go billing method, you continue to be charged for the feature after the feature is disabled. In this case, you can unsubscribe from the feature. For more information, see Unsubscribe from a control mode or the sensitive data protection feature that you purchased by using the pay-as-you-go billing method.
