Managing the Redaction Map

Updated 1 month ago by Elvis Hovor

TruSTAR offers the ability to redact, or remove, information from a report using the Redaction feature.

You must be an Administrator to edit the Redaction Map.

  2. Click Redaction to display the types of terms you can edit.
  3. To add a term, select the type of term you want to add, then type the term into the text box on the right side.

All changes are saved immediately in the Redaction Map.

Importing Terms

TruSTAR provides an easy way to add a list of terms to the Redaction Map, by importing a file in either JSON or .csv format.

  1. Click the User Settings icon on the left-side menu in TruSTAR Station, then click Settings on the menu. This displays the settings available to you.

  3. Check that the file you want to import meets the formats shown at the top of the dialog box.
  4. Drag and drop the file you want to import to the dialog box.
If there are issues with the information or format, such as duplicate terms or a misspelled type of information, TruSTAR displays the error messages after importing the file.

Exporting Terms
