Content Redaction

The Content Redaction feature requires at minimum NEV 2.2.0 and Nuxeo ARender addon 2021.3.0.

Protecting and removing personal identifying information (PII) from your documents can be a requirement in order to comply with regulations such as the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) or the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

This release introduces the capacity for Nuxeo Enhanced Viewer users to redact content. More information can be found in the dedicated how to use content redaction page.

A couple of non-blocker known issues regarding this feature have been identified and will be tackled as soon as possible:

  • Downloading / Printing the redacted version of a PNG file can fail:
    [NEV-604]
  • When generating a permanently redacted file, the corresponding notification disappears too quickly:
    [NEV-599]

Security Notice

The Download with FDF annotations is known to leave redacted content visible.

This button should be disabled in your configuration if you have users accessing a redacted document without the Redact permission. This is not the case if your users access a permanently redacted document as the redacted annotations are merged into the blob.

To disable this button you need to remove its declaration from topPanel.download.buttons.beanNames parameter like below:

topPanel.download.buttons.beanNames=\
  downloadButton,\
  downloadRootButton,\
  downloadAllSourcesButton,\
  downloadPdfButton,\
  downloadAllButton,\
  downloadAnnotationsButton,\
  downloadRedactButton,\
  downloadAnnotationsCSVButton,\
  downloadXFDFAnnotationsButton,\
  downloadWithCompareButton

For more information see NEV-609.
