How to Anonymize Task Worker Data

Written by Ingo Richtsmeier on , under Execution category.
I recently got into a discussion about saving user ids of task workers in the database. During the last releases the Camunda Engine got very good in capturing all actions that are done in the Cockpit and in the Tasklist. This is nice for revisions, but some companies, especially in Germany, don’t want to track down every activity to an individual. There is a need to anonymize the work done by task workers: The group manager should not easily analyze who is the best of his team as all team members should be judged equally.
