WKC data is not protected in a sensitive project

The data what we tested in assets are as follows.

data from WKC in a project

As a project editor, I can use the data without viewing the Patient ID, because I don't have the authorization to view it. So, it is a very important and helpful mechanism to cooperate with hospital or other institute with privacy concerns.

However, the protection function is only supported in WKC and data refinery.

In refinery, the data are perfect to be protected as follows.

data in Refinery

* In AutoAI, the data can't be found in the data list.

data in AutoAI

* In modeler flow, I can clearly view the real ID in preview mode.

data in modeler flow

* In notebook, I can clearly view the real ID after reading the data.

data in notebook

So, this function is not acceptable if the purpose of WKC is to protect the data without viewing the real content for the other users.

Please make this function work in all of the project components.

    Hi Susanna,

    I believe the idea is WKC can export the table 'after' sensitive protection.

    In this way, clients view the table get what they see. Not the original table that they are not authenticated to access.

    Hi Susanna

    May I ask the OM who is responsible for this?

    Hi Taichi,

    Although the policy enforcement capability is part of WKC, the areas you mentioned (Auto AI, modeler flow and notebook) are features from Watson Studio and WML. Any enforcement will need to be implemented in that service. Hence, I'm transferring the idea to the Studio team.
