Data Markings allow developers to associate attributes to the keys that protect application data. These attributes can be used for both data access policy purposes and for analytics purposes.
The Markings RESTful APIs are used to manage markings and values associated with those markings.
- Markings: Management of data markings. See the Markings Introduction.
- Values: Management of values for a data marking. See the Marking Values Introduction.
The Markings allows management of markings and their associated values. The use of the Marking Values API allows for more performant management of markings with many values, while also providing a simpler way to add, remove, and edit individual marking values without the need to provide the complete state of all values in the body of requests to Update Marking.
The List Markings and Get Marking APIs each
support an optional query parameter called
valueLimit that may be used and set to
?valueLimit=0 to exclude the values
from the responses, which will improve the response time of those APIs.
This may be helpful for customers that define hundreds or thousands of values for one or more markings.
NOTE: Management of these resources can be accomplished through either the API or the Ionic dashboard. For instructions on using the Ionic.com dashboard, see the Administrator Console Guide.
