Identify and Resolve Violations

With the Confidential Table Setup configuration in place, the Confidential Data Protection can identify and resolve confidentiality-violating permission set assignments in your Business Central environment.

Identify Confidentiality Violations

Using the View Confidentiality Violations action on the Confidential Data Protection Setup page you can open an overview of the confidentiality-violating permission set assignments that have been identified by the Confidential Data Protection extension.
