Privacy rules can be applied in multiple areas of the Experience Analytics system.
Privacy rules are the mechanism by which hits are selected for data blocking or encryption. The Privacy session agent interprets each rule against the hit data and filters out content based on the rule specification. Rules are mechanisms for grouping actions to fire based on the same condition.
Rule naming conventions
In the Rules configuration panel, each rule is defined in its own section. Rule sections are
named starting with
[Rule1]. The next rule is
[Rule2], which is
[Rule3], and so on.
- Rules must be named with the
Rule + Numberformat shown above or the Privacy session agent does recognize them.
- Rules are evaluated in numeric order, not in the order listed in the file. For example, if
[Rule2]is listed before
[Rule1]is still evaluated first.
- A maximum of 256 rules are supported by the Privacy session agent.
