Yellowfin Support has requested a backup of my Yellowfin Configuration Database to replicate an issue I'm facing. Doesn't this contain private data?

In regards to the Configuration Database, by default this will not contain any of your report data and is generally safe to share. There are a few tables that may contain PII, such as:

User Accounts - names and email addresses in the IpClass, Person, and IpContact tables.

Cached Filter Values - these are stored in the database in the CachedFilterValue table.

Cached Report Sets - these are byte encoded and stored as a chunk in the DocumentData table.

By default no Report Data (other than cached filters) is stored in the Config DB. We're ok to truncate all above tables if desired, except where IpId=5 in the IpClass table.

Thanks,

Ryan
