ABAC Not Working in Review Screen



In the Reviw screen, Attribute-based access control (ABAC) does not function and the Social Security Number (SSN) is not masked.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure an Access control policy.
  2. Define an Access control policy condition. Verify if the isShowSSN property value is true.
  3. Configure a data transform to explicitly set the isShowSSN value to True or False. 

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules 

The SSN data was loaded from a data page during the initial load. The Masking condition checked the isShowSSN flag, which was null at load time. Hence the Access control policy conditions never returned false and masking failed.


Perform the following local-change:

In Access control policy condition, if the Property is not null, select the 'Treat Empty as null' checkbox.
