Handling of NoSQL Java Collection objects for transaction purposes

All NoSQL "Collection" type objects are not classed as having code - i.e. they are codeless and are created via "getcollection" statements. As such, these objects either exist or do not and therefore NoSQL for Java extension does not compute a checksum on them. See for more information. This means that in reality, if a transaction is really changed to add or remove a collection, then the java code itself is changed and so the transaction will be  marked as modified. This in turn means that in an environment where the same release of a the NoSQL for Java extension is used for successive analyses, changes in java objects are enough to change the transaction values.

Data sensitivity

The NoSQL for Java extension is capable of setting a property on specific objects for the following:

  • custom sensitivity
  • GDPR

See Data Sensitivity for more information. For example:

Structural rules

  • No labels
