Create and Upload an Encrypted EDM Data Set Using a Configuration File

Use the Exact Data Matching (EDM) CLI application to create and upload an encrypted hash Exact Data Matching (EDM) data set in CSV or TSV format using a configuration file.
Create and upload an encrypted hash Exact Data Matching (EDM) data set using a configuration file included with the EDM CLI application. The configuration file allows you to configure the upload parameters for upload ahead of time rather than manually entering each parameter at the time of upload. You can also quickly update an existing EDM data set on the DLP cloud service when you configure the
config.properties
and
upload_config.properties
files.
  1. In the
    upload_config.properties
    file, you must enter a unique data set name for EDM data set you want to create and upload as the
    dataset_name
    . Upload to the DLP cloud service fails if you upload an EDM data set with a data set name that already exists in the DLP app.
  2. Review the Supported EDM Data Set Formats and prepare the EDM data set for upload to the DLP cloud service.
  3. Navigate to the
    package-edm-secure-cli-<version>-<platform>
    directory and open the
    config.properties
    file.
  4. Configure the EDM data set upload parameters.
    1. Enter the path of the EDM data set for upload.
    2. Enter the delimiter used to specify boundaries between values in the EDM data set.
      The “
      ,
      ” and tab (
      t
      ) delimiters are supported for EDM data set uploads. An EDM data set may only use one delimiter.
    3. Enter the EDM data set encoding method.
    4. Enter the error threshold percentage for the EDM data set.
      A secured version of the EDM data set is not created if the DLP cloud service encounters errors exceeding the specified error threshold percentage.
    5. Specify whether the EDM data set has a header row.
      Enter
      true
      if the EDM data set includes a header row.
      Enter
      false
      if the EDM data set does not include a header row.
    6. Specify whether the EDM CLI application should abort the EDM data set upload if the EDM data set includes more than the maximum number of cells supported.
      Enter
      true
      to upload the maximum number of data set cells supported.
      Enter
      false
      to abort EDM CLI application if the EDM data set has more than the maximum number of data set cells supported.
    7. Map your columns using the supported Data Types Value to accurately map each column in your EDM data set to a specific Data Type.
      Refer to the
      README.txt
      file packaged with the EDM CLI application for the table to map your EDM data set columns to the correct Data Type value.
    8. Select
      File
      and
      Save
      the configuration file.
  5. Upload the EDM data set to the DLP cloud service.
    1. Open a terminal and navigate to the
      package-edm-secure-cli-<version>-<platform>
      directory where the EDM CLI application is located.
    2. Upload the EDM data set to the DLP cloud service.
      • Windows
        admin:
        edm-secure-cli.bat create -u
      • Linux
        admin:
        ./edm-secure-cli.sh create -u
      A secured copy of the EDM data set specified is created and the EDM data set begins uploading to the DLP cloud service.
    3. Verify that the EDM data set is uploaded to the DLP cloud service successfully.
      A progress bar and success message is displayed to notify you whether the upload is successful.
  6. Monitor the upload status on the DLP app on the hub.
    The time it takes for an EDM data set uploaded to DLP cloud service to be available on the DLP app depends on the EDM data set size and internet connectivity speed. For example, a 4GB EDM data set upload typically takes about 30 minutes to display in the DLP app and be usable in an EDM filtering profile.
    1. Log in to the DLP app on the hub.
    2. Select
      Detection Methods
      Exact Data Matching
      and locate the uploaded EDM data set.
    3. The EDM data set upload is complete when the
      Indexing Status
      column displays
      Complete
      .
