Tracking column sensitivity and generator changes
On the Privacy Hub, the Protection Audit Trail tracks the following actions related to detecting and protecting sensitive data:
  • A Tonic privacy scan flags a column as sensitive.
  • A user manually flags a column as either sensitive or not sensitive.
  • A user changes the assigned generator for a column.

Navigating the list

The Protection Audit Trail entries are grouped by the date on which an action occurred.
By default, the list shows 10 actions per page. To change the number of actions per page, select an option from the View dropdown list.
