Choice of profile

Anonymisation works by profile. There are 4 profiles already created. When you select a profile, a certain amount of data is already set. They can, of course, be modified.

  • Go to Administration > Anonymization profile and select the profile best suited to your needs:

The 4 profiles you will find are :

  • Email

  • Entity

  • Computer

  • User profile

Profiles

Anonymisable data per profile (predefined)

Each profile has an element assigned to it. You will need to define the value of each attribute that it will be able to anonymise (or not)

Application strategy

Several strategies are available for each element field (e.g.Last name, First name, Serial number, Location, Status, etc.):

  • Keep the value

  • Delete the value

  • Replace with a fixed value

  • Replace with a standard random value

  • Replace with a realistic random value

History

Each profile allows you to choose the treatment to be applied to the history of items:

  • Do nothing

  • Clean up values

  • Clean up recent values and delete the rest

  • Delete

Applying the profile

Once you have completed your profile, you need to apply it. It can be applied using 2 methods:

  • Massive action via the web interface (cloud and on-premise)

  • In CLI (only on-premise)

Mass action (Cloud and on-premise)

In our example, we will be anonymising user data.

  • Go to Administration > Users. Select the user(s) you wish to anonymise.

  • Click on Actions then anonymise selected items.

massive action

Note

“To be adapted If your profile concerns entities, go to Administration > Entities and repeat the operation for the entities concerned. Do the same for computers, email, etc.

Via CLI (on-premise only)

  • Go to your GLPI folder (/var/www/glpi or other depending on your configuration):

  • Run all default profiles on all objects:

    $ php bin/console glpi:plugin:anonymize --all
    
  • Run profile X on all objects / on one object:

    $ php bin/console glpi:plugin:anonymize --profile=X
    $ php bin/console glpi:plugin:anonymize --profile=X --item-id=X
    
  • Run default profile type X on all objects / on one object :

    $ php bin/console glpi:plugin:anonymize --itemtype=X
    $ php bin/console glpi:plugin:anonymize --itemtype=X --item-id=X
    

Creating a profile

You can create a profile to anonymise other data than that mentioned above.

  • Go to Administration > Anonymisation profile

  • Click on Add

  • Name your profile

  • Choose from the list of Element types (agent, domain, etc.)

  • Select the treatment of the History

  • Set the parameters for each field

  • Click on Add

Note

Remember to refer to the profile application section to apply your changes.
