GDPR - change LDAP user data in MDM CE

After new GDPR regulations we had to remove the users data from MDM CE 11.4. If for normal users was easy to do this, for LDAP users is impossible to do these changes. As the customer will not make changes in its AD Server, we need to be able to delete or change with dummy data in these 3 fields: Last Name , First Name and Email.

    Hi Joe,

    Those 3 fields I am pretty sure that are used only in one window and don't impact anything else. Deleting them will have zero consequences. Is not a Cloud offering. Anyway, this issue was moved here: .

    Hi Lucian:  The user name can be recognized in far more fields than just the ones you have listed.  Also, de-identifying this data may have a serious data integrity impact on other systems.  Have you conducted an analysis as to what the downstream impact would be of this change?  Also, is this an IBM Cloud offering?  It sounds like this may be a GTS/local account issue and I'd need to redirect the request.
