ServiceNow new in Tokyo - Data Filtration

 - these work in conjunction with ACLs, however they are executed BEFORE  the ACLs - data filtration is a 'deny' principle whereas ACL a 'grant' principle - data filtration reduces the need for scripting - they run AFTER before query business rules - will still see the 'removed due to security contraints' message unfortunately - requires security_admin role just like ACLs but there is no admin override feature - specific to scoped app it's defined in (might not have access to certain global/other app tables if defined in a scoped app) - key design criteria: machine enforceable and human readable (so improves on ACLs) - declarative option over scripted option reduces technical debt - No ACL will grant you access that a data filtration has already taken out - may need to install the 'data filtration' plugin as not installed by default yet on Tokyo version - remember to elevate privilege to security admin first
