Configuring PII data class to hide data

About this task

Protect sensitive data by configuring a data class to hide data from unauthorized users.

You need to assign a sensitivity label configured to mask data to a data class.


  1. Go to Manage > Data Classes.
  2. Select the PII data class to edit its properties.
  3. Click the drop-down menu under Default Sensitivity and select a sensitivity label configured to hide data. In this case, select Highly Confidential.
  4. Save your changes.


The profile and sample data of any object associated with this data class is automatically hidden. When the Data Hide attribute of an imported object is set to True, it ignores the Data Hide flag of its sensitivity label.
