DataMasque Limited may require you to share usage data before issuing a renewal or upgraded licence. To share the above usage data with DataMasque Limited, click the SEND USAGE button on the Licence Information panel, and confirm with the SEND button on the pop-up dialog to proceed.

On confirmation, an email will be sent to DataMasque Limited containing your licence usage information (as detailed in the Download usage section). The email is sent using the SMTP configuration provided in the application settings. The DataMasque instance's admin user and yourself will also be BCC'd on this email.

Note: The SEND USAGE button may be disabled if SMTP settings are missing.

Your user account information is displayed in the second panel of 'My Account'. It shows your user account details and an API key you can use to automate tasks using the DataMasque REST API (see Best Practices).

Updating Account Information

Basic user account information such as email address and password can be updated by clicking the  Edit Button  button. A form will be displayed allowing you to update this information. Using this form, you can also opt in or opt-out of receiving email updates when new unmasked sensitive data is found during sensitive data discovery.

Your Git SSH key information is displayed in the last panel of My Account. It contains information about your Git SSH key that will be used to authenticate the connection to the remote Git repository.

Note: Git SSH key management is only available for Admin users and Mask Builder users. Each user can only store one SSH key.

Uploading a Git SSH key

A Git SSH key file (often named id_rsa) can be uploaded by clicking the  Add Button  button, or by clicking the  Edit Button  button if you have already uploaded a Git SSH key file.
