Is it possible for DocuWare to automatically redact given areas on a document?

DocuWare does not do redaction. Sure you can add overlays that appear to be redaction, but those overlays can be turned on or off by the user.
To truly redact a document, you must add an overlay that obscures the area in question, and then merge the layer with the document to make the layer a permanent part of the document. Since this will only be possible with PDF type documents this may or may not be a solution.

Ok. Thanks!

But is it possible to do this automatically somehow?

a simple REST API program can be written that when executed would place an annotation (in your case a filled rectangle) in a predetermined position(s) and page(s)  on  some documents (selected by aspecified search criteria). You also can optionally merge the annotaion on documents (providing they are PDFs) by the program so the redaction is permanent or leave them as layers.
