  1. From the Automated Redaction Dictionary Configuration dialog box, select the Dictionary to be configured from the Dictionary Name list.
  2. Click Expressions. The Automated Redaction Regular Expressions dialog box is displayed.
  3. Enter the regular expression you are adding to the Dictionary (i.e., values matching the format specified by the regular expression will be redacted from documents when undergoing Automated Redaction) in the Regular Expression field.
    Tip:

    For a list of commonly used regular expressions, see Regular Expressions Overview.

  4. If you wish to redact only a portion of the specified regular expression, in the Regular Expression field, enclose the portion(s) to be redacted in parentheses. If you include parentheses in the regular expression, any portion of the regular expression outside these parentheses will not be redacted. If you do not include parentheses, the entire regular expression will be redacted.

    For example:

    You need to redact Social Security Numbers from a set of forms, but you may not wish to redact the SSN: tag that precedes the numbers.

    • If you enter [A-Z]{3}: \d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4} in the Regular Expression field, both the leading tags and the numbers that follow will be redacted (e.g., SSN: 111-22-3333).

    • If you enter [A-Z]{3}: (\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}) in the Regular Expression field, only the portion included within the parentheses (in this case, the numbers) will be redacted (e.g., 111-22-3333). The leading tags will not be redacted (e.g., SSN:).

  5. Click Add. The regular expression is added to the Regular Expression list.
  6. Repeat Steps 3 to 5 for each regular expression that you would like to add to the Dictionary.
  7. Once a regular expression has been added to the Dictionary:
    • To Modify the Regular Expression. Double-click the regular expression in the Regular Expression list. The Edit Dictionary Term dialog box is displayed.

      Enter the modified regular expression in the Dictionary term field and click OK.

      The Edit Dictionary Term dialog box is closed and you are returned to the Automated Redaction Regular Expressions dialog box. Note that the regular expression has been modified in the Regular Expression list.

    • To Delete the Regular Expression. Select the regular expression in the Regular Expression list and click Delete. The regular expression is removed from the Regular Expression list.

  8. Click Close to close the Automated Redaction Regular Expressions dialog box and return to the Automated Redaction Dictionary Configuration dialog box.
