Hello Veeam Community!
I'm excited to introduce a Python script that I've developed for anonymizing Veeam Backup & Replication logs. Protecting sensitive information in log files is crucial, and this script simplifies the process while maintaining the integrity of your logs.
Before diving into the details, I'd like to express my gratitude:
- Bertrand: Thank you for the original idea that inspired this script and for your valuable improvement suggestions. Your input was instrumental in making this script more robust and feature-rich.
- Eric: A big thank you for your unwavering support and encouragement throughout the development process. Your feedback and insights helped shape this tool.
I want to clarify that I'm not a developer by profession, but rather a member of the Veeam community who saw the need for a tool like this. The script has been created out of a passion for data privacy and a desire to contribute to our community.
- Anonymization: The script can anonymize sensitive information such as server names, user accounts, IP addresses, and more, helping you comply with data privacy regulations.
- Mapping Table: It generates a mapping table of original and anonymized values, making it easy to trace back anonymized data when needed.
- Extensible: The script is highly extensible, allowing you to add custom anonymization patterns or adapt it for other log formats.
- Open Source: The script is open-source and available for the Veeam community to use and contribute to.
How to Get Started:
I've posted the script on GitHub, along with detailed documentation and usage instructions. You can find it here: https://github.com/JMousqueton/VeeamLogAnonymizer
