How do I set up Anonymize?

A procedure is available to help you set up this plugin.

How does Anonymize work?

This plugin enables data to be anonymised in GLPI, directly from the web interface or from the command line, either individually or on a massive scale. It adds anonymisation profiles that allow you to select the attributes that will be anonymised (computer creation date, user email address, ticket tracking, etc.).

Can I create new profiles?

There are 4 default profiles, but you can create as many as you like. A procedure is available to help you.

Can I go back once the profile has been applied?

No. Once anonymisation has been carried out, it is not possible to go back. You will have to recreate the elements with their original values.

If I deactivate the plugin, will the data be restored to their original values?

No. Once the values have been anonymised, the attributes will remain anonymous. Deactivating the plugin will not change your values.

What types of data can be anonymised?

Depending on the profile you choose or create, you can anonymise a whole list of data. They can be consulted in the procedure available here

How can I anonymise some information and keep others on the same profile?

An element has several fields. For example, a user has several fields such as surname, first name, telephone number, address, etc. For each field, you can decide to :

  • Keep the value,
  • delete the value,
  • replace with a fixed value,
  • replace with a standard random value,
  • replace with a realistic random value.
How do I anonymise a field that is not present in the selected profile?

In the profile concerned, the option attributes to be searched for and replaced throughout the database is available. For example, if you select email, all the email fields in the entire database will be replaced.

Why hasn't my profile been applied?

Check that the fields in your profile have a value other than keep so that anaonymise can modify the desired fields.
