Verify a Sensitive Data Model

Verification helps you to maintain a sensitive data model's accuracy. When you verify a sensitive data model against a target database, Oracle Data Safe reports sensitive columns in your sensitive data model that do not exist in the database. Oracle Data Safe also reports new referential relationships. You can verify a sensitive data model from the Library against any registered target database. The verification feature is available on the Sensitive Data Model page in the Library, in the Data Discovery wizard, and in the Data Masking wizard.

To verify a sensitive data model against a target database from the Sensitive Data Model page:
  1. Click the Library tab.
  2. Click Sensitive Data Models.
  3. Select the check box for the SDM that you want to verify.
  4. Click Verify Against Target.
    The Select Target for Data Model Verification page is displayed.
  5. Select the target database against which you want to verify the SDM, and click Continue.
    If your target database is not listed, click Register and register your target database.
    The verification job is started. The FINISHED status is displayed when the job is completed.
  6. If the job is successful, click Continue; otherwise, click Back, change your selections, and retry the verification.
  7. On the Data Model Verification Result page, review the schema and column differences between the SDM and the target database, if any.
  8. Click Continue.
  9. Review the sensitive columns in the SDM.
  10. (Optional) Add or remove sensitive columns from the SDM.
    To add sensitive columns to your SDM, click Add.
    To remove sensitive columns from your SDM, deselect sensitive categories, sensitive types, and individual sensitive columns.
  11. (Optional) Click Report to view the report for the SDM.
  12. Click Exit to finish the verification process.
