    3. Enter the login credentials for an account with administrative privileges on the Citrix ShareFile page to which you are redirected to enable communication between the Aperture service and the ShareFile apps.
    4. Review and Accept the changes so that the Aperture service can perform scans on your assets in ShareFile.
      Upon successful authentication, the new ShareFile app is added to the list of Cloud Apps as Citrix ShareFile n, where n is the number of ShareFile app instances that you have connected to the Aperture service, for example ShareFile1.
  3. (Optional) Give a descriptive name to this app instance.
    1. Select the ShareFile instance on the Cloud Apps list.
    2. Enter a descriptive Name to differentiate this instance of ShareFile from other instances you are managing.
    3. Click Done to save your changes.
  4. Define global scan settings.
  5. Add policy rules.
    When you add a new cloud app, the Aperture service automatically scans the app against the default data patterns and displays the match occurrences. As a best practice, consider the business use of your app to determine whether you want to Add a New Policy Rule for Content to look for risks unique to the new app.
  6. (Optional) Configure or edit a data pattern.
    When you add a new cloud app, the Aperture service automatically scans the app against the default data patterns and displays the match occurrences. You can Configure Data Patterns to identify specific strings of text, characters, words, or patterns to make it possible to find all instances of text that match a data pattern you specify.
  7. Start scanning the new ShareFile app for risks.
    1. Select SettingsCloud Apps & Scan Settings.
    2. In the Cloud Apps row that corresponds to the new ShareFile app, select ActionsStart Scanning.
  8. Monitor the results of the scan.
    As the Aperture service starts scanning files and matching them against enabled policy rules, Monitor Scan Results on the Dashboard to verify that your policy rules are effective.
    Monitoring the progress of the scan during the discovery phase allows you to Fine-Tune Policy to modify the match criteria and ensure better results.
