Any plans to add Granularity to UNMASK in Dynamic Data Masking (DDM) SQL Server 2016? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Right now, Unmask is global. You can not specify unmask permissions at the table level or column level. Column level would be ideal. It's currently all or nothing. This definitely does not meet business needs. We have different tiers of users that have different levels of permissions to data.

  • I have forwarded your suggestion to the team working on dynamic data masking. We typically do not comment on future features, though it seems pretty clear that a granular unmask would be useful.

  • Hi, Thanks for your suggestion.

    Indeed the request for a more granular masking permission is a common ask we've heard from customers. We will undoubtedly take this into consideration when planning future versions of this feature.

    Thanks
