Connector updates

Fides 2.12

May 2, 2023


  • Pseudonymous consent preferences: Identity verification for saving consent preferences is now optional. Previously, all consent requests required either email or phone validation.

    • Viewers: Viewers have view access to the Data Map and all systems.
