    Attribute Description Required
    name string Unique, request-friendly template name. Yes
    displayName string Unique, human-readable template name. Yes
    description string The template description. Yes
    classifiers array Includes each classifier's name and overrides for minConfidence and tags. Yes

    An example is provided below.

    {
      "name": "ACCOUNT_NUMBERS_TEMPLATE",
      "displayName": "Account Numbers Template",
      "description": "This template contains the classifier that identifies account numbers.",
      "classifiers": [
        {
          "name": "ACCOUNT_NUMBER_CLASSIFIER"
        }
      ],
      "sampleSize": 100
    }
    
  2. Run immuta sdd template create <filepath> [flags], referencing the file you just created. The options you can specify include

    • -h or --help: Get more information about the command.
    • -o or --output json | yaml: Specify the output format.
    • --outputTemplate string: Format the response using a Go template.

Example

{
  "name": "ACCOUNT_NUMBERS_TEMPLATE",
  "displayName": "Account Numbers Template",
  "description": "This template contains the classifier that identifies account numbers.",
  "sampleSize": 100,
  "createdBy": {
    "id": 1,

Get a Global Template

Global Templates Must be Configured in the Immuta UI

This command only returns templates that have been configured, not the default global template. If no custom global template has been configured by an Administrator, you will receive an error message.

To configure a global template in the Immuta UI, see this tutorial.

Run immuta sdd template global [flags], to get the global template that has been configured for Sensitive Data Discovery. Options you can specify include

  • -h or --help: Get more information about the command.
  • -o or --output json | yaml: Specify the output format.
  • --outputTemplate string: Format the response using a Go template.

Example

The example below illustrates a user getting the global template that had been configured in the Immuta UI by an Administrator.

$ immuta sdd template global
Getting global template...
{
  "name": "ACCOUNT_NUMBERS_TEMPLATE",
  "displayName": "Account Numbers Template",
  "description": "This template contains the classifier that identifies account numbers.",
  "sampleSize": 2000,
  "createdBy": {
    "id": 1,
    "name": "Example User",
    "email": "user@example.com"
  },
  "id": 3,
  "createdAt": "2022-03-28T17:10:48.507Z",
  "updatedAt": "2022-03-28T17:10:48.507Z",
  "classifiers": [
    {
      "name": "ACCOUNT_NUMBER_CLASSIFIER",
      "overrides": {}
    }
  ]
}

Search Templates

Run immuta sdd template search [string] [flags] to list all templates or search templates by name. Options you can specify include

  • --classifiers strings: Limit results to only templates that contain the specified classifiers.
  • -h, --help: Help for search.
  • --limit int The search limit for pagination (default 25).
  • --offset int: The search offset for pagination.
  • --order asc | desc: The sort order.
  • -o, --output json | yaml: The output format.

  • -s, --sort id | name | displayName | type | createdAt | updatedAt: Field to sort by.

Example

The example below illustrates a user searching all templates containing the ACCOUNT_NUMBER_CLASSIFIER.

$ immuta sdd template search --classifiers="ACCOUNT_NUMBER_CLASSIFIER"
Searching all templates...
ACCOUNT_NUMBERS_TEMPLATE This template contains the classifier that identifies account numbers.
