Question of the Day

Sensitivity Ranks

I want to use the ADD SENSITIVITY CLASSIFICATION DDL to mark some columns in my SQL Server 2022 database as PII. Can I use this code?

ADD SENSITIVITY CLASSIFICATION TO dbo.sales.price,
    dbo.sales.discount
WITH (
    LABEL = 'Highly Confidential',
    INFORMATION_TYPE = 'Financial',
    RANK = 'INTERNAL ONLY'
);
