Hello everybody,

I'm trying to anonymize user data on Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS).

 

Following the MS guide I've enabled the anonymize flags in the MCAS settings panel.

These are my configuration:

Unfortunately, after a couple of hours, I still can see in plaintext the field User. Here you can see some logs under my Activity Log panel.

Am i missing some configurations or steps?
How long should I wait before the anonymization is enabled?

Hi Timmy,
the anonymization feature is only for the cloud discovery data in MCAS.
If you have any data from a snapshot report / log collector you will see the user names are anonymized.
It has no effect on the activity log.

Regards,
Dima
