Replace Literals: Scrubs strings and numbers

Why - String and numeric literals may contain sensitive or Personally Identifiable Information (PII). 

When - At collection time and before uploading or presenting the data to Foglight

Where – Performance Investigator, Top SQL, Execution Plan, etc.

How - 

  • Affects all strings and/or numbers within a statement
  • Replaces strings, any string, within quoted characters, with *Replaced by Foglight*
  • Replaces numbers with 1 followed by zeros and add a note at the bottom to indicate the action

Set in the Global View

Change state will present a warning message:

Set to Yes – 

  • Data will be scrubbed with no option to restore the stored data in the future

Set to No – 

  • Literal will be uploaded with no option to remove already stored information
  • Require the user to confirm that scrub data is now off

Uses lockbox credential as a global parameter to control Replace Literals setting
