List Built-In Identifiers


In previous documentation, identifier is referred to as classifier. The language is being updated to identifier to be more accurate and not conflate meaning with the Immuta data classification and frameworks feature.


Attributes of identifiers and templates are provided on the Sensitive data discovery API page. However, attributes specific to listing identifiers are outlined in the table below.

Attribute Description
sortField string The field by which to sort the search results: id, name, displayName, type, createdAt, or updatedAt.
sortOrder string Denotes whether to sort the results in ascending (asc) or descending (desc) order. Default is asc.
offSet integer Use in combination with limit to fetch pages.
limit integer Limits the number of results displayed per page.
type array[string] Searches for identifiers based on identifier type: builtIn.
searchText string A partial, case-insensitive search on name.

List built-in identifiers

  1. Generate your API key on the API Keys tab on your profile page and save the API key somewhere secure. You will include this API key in the authorization header when you make a request to the Immuta API or use it to configure your instance with the Immuta CLI.

  2. List built-in identifiers using one of these methods:

    Immuta CLI

    immuta api sdd/classifier?sortField=name&sortOrder=asc&limit=100&type=builtIn


    curl \
        --request GET \
        --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
        --header "Authorization: 12345678900000" \

If the request was successful, you will receive a list of built-in identifiers.
