GDPR changes for Server - Anonymise Users

Hey Community.


I am considering the effect of this change on Tempo.
We have about 20 database tables to update when userKeys are changed.

From what I see here:


a) I don't see any way of intercepting an event for the update?

b) If there were such an event, would it make sense for one user at a time or all the users?


c) My thinking is that if we get all updated user keys in a single event, we can:

1. Store the user key mappings in a temporary table.
2. Update each database table one at a time with a join to that table (~20 SQL updates).
3. Run all the SQL updates in a single database transaction?
4. Delete the updated users key from the temporary table.
5. Create a UI for users to retry a failed update.
6. Notify users somehow if the app is in an unstable state caused by a `not complete update`.

d) Updating one user at a time will be slower we will need 20XUSER_COUNT SQL updates. I am thinking that is not optimal?

e)  Should Jira be locked while this operation is in progress?




I see now this event UserKeyChangedEvent, seems like this will be called per user meaning that we will need to update each user one at a time.


We could save this event to a table and update all together but seems suboptimal.


Is there any good reason to update only one at a time?
