May 18, 2018 — Oracle is pleased to announce the availability of the Oracle E-Business Suite Person Data Removal Tool, designed to remove (obfuscate) data associated with people in E-Business Suite systems. Customers can apply the tool to select information in their E-Business Suite production systems to help address internal operational and external regulatory requirements, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Using the Person Data Removal Tool, business analysts identify persons for whom data should be removed, consistent with data privacy and data retention policies. They then run checks to verify that the identified persons have no active transactions or other constraint conditions that would make it inappropriate to remove the person data. For persons who pass the checks, they then remove the person data.
E-Business Suite provides constraints and rules for use with the Person Data Removal Tool. These constraints and rules drive the checks and the removal of data from E-Business Suite database tables associated with employees, customer contacts and supplier contacts. The delivered constraints and rules can be extended to address additional requirements or customizations.
