Begin Scanning Dropbox, GitHub, or Yammer

Use the following procedure to add Dropbox, GitHub, or Yammer as a monitored cloud application on the Aperture service.
The Yammer application is not supported in the APAC region.
  1. Add the SaaS application.
    1. From the Aperture Dashboard, Add a Cloud App.
    2. Select the application and enter the email address for the password for the account.
      • For Dropbox, the account must have administrative user privileges.
      • For GitHub, the account must have owner privileges.
      • For Yammer, the account must have network administrator privileges.
    3. Connect to the <application nameaccount.
      The application is added to the list of Cloud Apps that are managed by the Aperture service. By default, the application is added as <application name><instance>, for example Yammer 1.
  2. (Optional) Enter a descriptive name for the app instance.
    In the list of Cloud Apps, click the link that corresponds with the application logo and add a descriptive name so that you can identify this instance of the application.
  3. Enable Admin quarantine for Dropbox.
    Enter the Admin account email in SettingsCloud Apps & Scan Settings > DropboxAccount for Admin Quarantine. Click Done to save your setting.
  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 app for risks.
    1. Select SettingsCloud Apps & Scan Settings.
    2. In the Cloud Apps row that corresponds to the new app you just added, select ActionsStart Scanning.
      The status changes to Scanning. The Aperture service starts scanning all assets in the associated app and begins identifying incidents. Depending on the number of users and assets, it may take some time for the Aperture service to complete the process of discovering all assets and users. However, as soon as you begin to see this information populating in the Aperture web interface, you can begin to Assess Incidents.
  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.
