Classifying governed resouces

Classifying governed resources

Data Governance administrators and business owners can apply a previously defined classification level to governed resources.

  • As a Data Governance administrator, use the Set-QClassificationLevelOnDuG PowerShell cmdlet to classify governed data.
  • As a business owner, use the Classification page in the web portal to classify an owned resource.

To classify governed data (PowerShell)

  1. If necessary, import the QAM.Client.PowerShell.dll assembly:

    Import-Module "<path>"

    Where <path> is the file path for the QAM.Client.PowerShell.dll assembly. By default, the <path> for the Data Governance server machine is "C:\Program Files\One Identity\One Identity Manager\QAM.Client.PowerShell.dll".

  2. Run the following cmdlet to assign a classification level to a governed resource:

    Set-QClassificationLevelOnDuG [-DuGId] <String> [-ClassificationLevelId] <String> [[-Justification] [<String>]]

    • DuGId: Specify the identifier assigned to the governed resource to be classified (that is, value assigned to UID_QAMDuG parameter).

      Note: Run the Get-QDataUnderGovernance cmdlet to retrieve a list of governed resources, including their assigned identifiers.

    • ClassificationLevelId: Specify the identifier assigned to the classification level to be assigned (that is, value assigned to UID_QAMClassificationLevelMan parameter).

      Note: Run the Get-QClassificationLevelConfiguration cmdlet to retrieve a list of configured classification levels, including their assigned identifiers.

    • Justification: (Optional) Enter the reason for assigning this classification level.

To classify an owned resource (web portal)

  1. From the menu bar, select Responsibilities | My Responsibilities.
  2. On the My Responsibilities view, select the Governed Data tile.
  3. Open the All my resources tab and select the resource.
  4. Click Classification to display the current classification level assignment.
  5. From this page, you can assign a classification level to the selected resource:

    • Classification level: Select a classification level from the drop-down menu.
    • Description: Read-only field displaying the description of the selected classification level.
    • Justification: (Optional) Enter a reason for assigning this level of classification to the resource.
  6. Click Save. A "Your changes have been saved" message appears at the top of page.

Managing governed resources using the web portal

Data governance provides a systematic approach to managing data access, preserving data integrity, and providing you with the tools and workflows to manage your data resources, without relying on IT administrators. By evaluating resource access, you can identify resources that do not have ownership, assign owners, and assess the overall ownership of your governed data.

NOTE: The resource activity data is from the QAMPoIActivity table. Therefore, the activity data shown is based on the POI collection frequency and when the activity occurred. That is, every time POI data is collected for governed data, existing activity entries are replaced with the new activity data that is collected.

Governed Data Overview (Data Governance Administrator)

The Governed Data Overview view provides information to assist you in governing resources. As a Data Governance Administrator, select Responsibilities | Governance Administration | Governed Data Overview to view statistics for and a list of all governed resources.

NOTE: The statistics displayed on the Statistics page are calculated on an hourly schedule. To change the schedule, edit the hourly schedule defined in the QAM statistics schedule in the Designer (Getting Started | Edit schedules or Base Data | General | Schedules).

In addition: for the security statistics:

  • For the resource activity statistic, ensure the Collect and aggregate events option is enabled on the Resource activity page in the Managed Host Settings dialog. For more information on this resource activity setting, see Resource activity page.
  • For the security statistics, set the CollectPoi.IncludeDeviations configuration setting to true. You can find this configuration setting in the Data Governance service configuration file (%ProgramFiles%\One Identity\One Identity Manager Data Governance Edition\Server\DataGovernanceEdition.Server.exe.config). For more information on this configuration setting, see the One Identity Data Governance Edition Technical Insight Guide.

NOTE: The resource activity data is from the QAMPoIActivity table. Therefore, the activity data shown is based on the POI collection frequency and when the activity occurred. That is, every time POI data is collected for governed data, existing activity entries are replaced with the new activity data that is collected.
