In the IUIE, how do I indicate data as sensitive?

The IUIE Sensitive Data Indicator ( The IUIE Sensitive Data Indicator ) appears in various areas of publishing and report access management in the IUIE. The definition of sensitive data typically includes Social Security, bank account, and credit card numbers, but may extend to other data; see What is sensitive data, and how is it protected by law? As it applies to the IUIE, do not confuse the Sensitive Data Indicator with FERPA or HIPAA restrictions. The Sensitive Data Indicator serves as a reminder to Data Managers that granting access will include this category of data.

In most cases where this icon is used, it will be accompanied by a warning note that states sensitive data is being managed or assigned.

If you are an IUIE publisher, you can mark data as sensitive in the following ways:


Mark a column as containing sensitive data

  1. Click Edit Publishing Details, then Columns, and then Edit Column.
  2. On the Add/Edit Column page, check the Sensitive Data? box. A "Sensitive Comment" field will appear; enter a note (required) indicating the reason for the sensitive data indicator. See the screenshot below: The IUIE Add/Edit Column page with the Sensitive Data checkbox and Sensitive Comment note field highlighted

After you indicate data as sensitive, the Sensitive Data Indicator will appear on the following pages:

  • View Related Columns page: From the Add/Edit Column page, click View Related Definitions to see this page. The comment you entered for the sensitive data will appear next to any related column details. The View Related Columns page with  the sensitive data comment highlighted
  • Column List: Navigating back out to the column details, you will see the Sensitive Data Indicator next to the column you have designated. The column list with the Sensitive Data Indicator highlighted
  • Publishing Menu page: Navigating back out to the Edit Publishing Details page, you will see the Sensitive Data Indicator and a message at the top of the page, indicating that the report now contains columns with sensitive data.
