Option to hide/anonymize IPs in webserver logs to be GDPR compliant
It would be very helpfull if there would be an option to hide/anonymize IPs in webapps webserver logs. Right now you have to disable webserver logs completely to be GDPR compliant which might be not best practice.
Thank you for the feedback and recommendations on this important topic!
We will look at adding this to our feature roadmap though we don’t have any timing to share right now.
For additional guidance please refer to “Azure Data Subject Request GDPR Documentation” under the Service Trust Portal: https://servicetrust.microsoft.com/ViewPage/GDPRDSR. Specifically read through, Part 1 – Step 5, which discusses the removal of personal data and timing in which you can leverage retention period settings for the logs.
