Subject: [External] Case #00528349 - Fw: Azure Information Protection (AIP) or Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) [ ref:_00DE0JJZ4._5002R1On7Ru:ref ]

 

Hi Candice,

Thanks for reaching out. At this juncture, formal validation of data sources with AIP or MIP applied has not been conducted. Coincidentally, earlier this week, another user submitted an inquiry pertaining to Sensitivity Labels of MIP. They had observed that files with their organization's "Confidential" label applied were unable to be input within workflows.

Similar to password protected or encrypted files, Sensitivity Labels (and other AIP/MIP implementations) may be configured in a manner that prevents drivers (e.g. Excel) of Designer from reading the file. For any incompatibility that's observed within data sources with AIP or MIP applied, it's recommend to submit an Idea as to the Designer application supporting the scope of these implementations. Our Product and Engineering Teams actively monitor Ideas to help ensure we're delivering the best product experience to our users.

Thanks for writing in.

Best,

–Josh

Hi Support,

 

Please could you provide the options we have for files protected with either Azure Information Protection (AIP) or Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) to be used as inputs to Alteryx?

 

 

Please let us know if you require additional information.

 

Many thanks,

Hi Candice.

 

Seems there is an internal programme to implement this.

 

I have been contacted by three teams so far in the IB,  IB FX trading and IB Operations and IB Risk management.

 

 

In terms of potential impact it could be bank wide, but seems to be starting with the IB since November last year.

 

The program site (called DRM internally) states:

 

The Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution helps us manage data more effectively by putting a 'digital lock' on highly sensitive files. This means that even when a file is lost by accident, the external person who finds it cannot access its contents. These DRM classified and protected files can still be accessed and edited internally by UBS employees.

After a file has been classified according to its level of sensitivity DRM will automatically encrypt files if they are classified as 'confidential' or 'strictly confidential'. The classification and protection of a file can be set manually, or is automatically set for downloads of reports from applications that contain sensitive information or for users that have access to CID from specific applications (see details in the DRM guideline).

DRM is available globally in UBS.

 

Thanks Nick

Hi Nick,

 

Yes, I'm enquiring internally and will get back to you as soon as I have some information.

 

In the meantime, it would be good to understand:

  • Who is impacted by this issue?
  • What the impact is?
  • Where in the business this is being felt the most?
  • How many users / workflows are affected by this?
  • When did this first start to affect users / workflows?

Many thanks,

Thank you so much for sending this.  What version of the ayx package are you running?  I am on version 1.0.57 and am unable to find the "template" that's being referenced in the code:

Meteor, what version of the ayx package are you running?  I am running version 1.0.57 and am unable to access the "template" object that's being referenced in the python code.

i'm running the same version of the ayx package.  the template object is the field being passed from alteryx into python.  the first template object on 1 is the fullpath of the xlsx with the label.  the 2nd is the file you wish to apply the label to.

 

ie to the 2 select tools immediately before the python tool remove all fields from earlier and change the field name that contains the fullpath to 'template'.

i also want to upvote this, looks like this has been in debate for 2 yrs, hoping that a solution does get made officially, this will lead to alot of workflows needed rework for me
