As part of our effort to build-in Privacy in our product and for upcoming GDPR compliance #12600 we would like to release a new privacy tool.
The new tool could be available in the existing Administration> Privacy. It would record a "Request to Remove personal data" which would be executed during the scheduled tasks.
FYI: Unsetting eg all
idaction_event_category values may result in many more pageviews to be reported because the Actions-Archiver basically says
where idaction_event_category is null and idaction_content_name is null => must be a page view. So when such data is removed, it may really result in wrong reporting data or even weird action types that aren't maybe unexpected because suddenly behind
action.type might be an ID 10 instead of an expected
1 for the page view.
