Anonymizing investigative reports
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
If you want to prevent identifying information from appearing in investigative reports, you have several options.

If you sometimes need to generate reports that contain user information, but sometimes need to generate anonymous reports, use the Anonymous option at the top of the Investigative Reports page to hide user names and, optionally, source IP addresses temporarily, as described below.
The Anonymous option
By default, clicking Anonymous hides only user names, continuing to show source IP addresses in reports. You can configure investigative reports to instead hide both user names and source IP addresses when Anonymous is selected:
1.
On the management server, open the wse.ini file in a text editor. (By default, this file is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Websense\Web Security\webroot\Explorer.)
2.
encryptIP=1
3.
Now, any time you click Anonymous, all user-identifying information is hidden.
When you click Anonymous, and then move to a different view of the data, such as detail view or outliers, user names remain hidden in the new report. However, to return to the summary view with the names hidden, you must use the links at the top of the report, not the breadcrumbs in the banner.
