SQL Data Catalog

Descoping empty tables using rules


Descoping is the act of marking parts of your estate as Out of Scope. You might want to descope columns that are:

  • Not used - perhaps because we have purchased a third-party system that comes with modules we do not use and therefore carries with it empty tables
  • Not sensitive - which could be generated system identifiers that do not point to an individual

Descoping makes classifying the sensitive areas of your estate faster and easier.

SQL Data Catalog ships with a default descoping rule. However, if you're on an older version of the product, you can add the rule to your setup by running this script.
