    Anonymizing Member Details in a Network Zone

    Translatable
    Fields that contain identifying information of users can be anonymized for the Network Zone when creating reports for member institutions. Anonymizing this data enables a consortium to make reports for statistics and trends across the consortium without violating privacy concerns or local privacy-related laws. This feature is relevant only for Analytics reports created in the Network Zone. It has no relevance on the Analytics reports created in member institutions.
    To enable anonymized data in Analytics:
    Set the parameter analytics_anonymize_user_details to true on the Analytics Customer Parameters mapping table (Administration > Analytics > Configuration Menu > General Configuration > Analytics Network Settings).
    When the Network Zone creates a report, fields that usually contain identifying information for users are left blank. The following table lists the fields that are anonymized. The columns are subject areas. The rows are the anonymized fields. The cells contain the dimensions that contain these fields.
