Prerequisites for Using Data Protection and Privacy Functions

To make use of the data protection and privacy functions, you need to verify that you have met the prerequisites:

  1. Migrate to role-based permissions (RBP). Please note that this process takes time, so if you haven't done it yet we strongly recommend that you start as soon as possible.
  2. Activate the Metadata Framework (MDF). To do this, just go to the Upgrade Center and switch on the Extension Center. This activates MDF automatically.
  3. If you have Position Management, update to the right to return data model.

 Functionality Overview -  Data Protection and Privacy:
