How to govern the data?

Available geographical areas#

Global [Default]#

Provides geo-location based load balancing on all nodes around the globe to ensure the lowest response times.

EU Only#

Compliant with GDPR. This way your data will never leave the EU.

Set preferences on the Dashboard#

Open Data Governance page and follow the steps to set preferences.

Only team members with Organization Admin role can access Data Governance preferences.

Configure ConfigCat SDK in your application code#

Make sure the dataGovernance parameter is passed to the ConfigCat SDK in your application code when it is being initialized.

The dataGovernance parameter value must be in sync with the selected option on the Dashboard.


What if I forgot to pass the dataGovernance parameter?#

The ConfigCat backend will take the Dashboard preference as primary. Having EU Only selected on the Dashboard but forgot to pass the proper dataGovernance parameter to the SDK. In this case your config JSONs will only published to the EU CDN nodes. And every config.json download made from your application to any node outside the EU, the request will be redirected automatically to the EU CDN. Recommended to deploy a fix with the correct dataGovernance param, since response times will be significantly longer.

Warning: Your dataGovernance parameter at ConfigCatClient initialization is not in sync with your preferences...#

You worry do not. Your feature flags are served. See above example.
