Learn about the three types of data patterns available on SaaS Security API—predefined, custom, and file property.
We are in the process of replacing SaaS Security DLP (Classic) with SaaS Security DLP. During this process, use the topic that matches your tenant. If you purchased SaaS Security with Enterprise DLP Add‑on, opted in for a trial of SaaS Security with Enterprise DLP Add–on, or have a new tenant with SaaS Security DLP, use Configure Data Patterns; otherwise, use Configure Data Patterns—SaaS Security DLP (Classic).
Configure Data Patterns—SaaS Security DLP (Classic)
SaaS Security API offers the following data pattern types:
- SaaS Security API includes several predefined data patterns that automatically begin scanning content and detecting incidents as soon as you Add Cloud Apps to SaaS Security API. Predefined data patterns are grouped into six categories by content type:
- If you assign classification tags or labels as metadata to files, with the file property data pattern you can specify any custom or extended file property as a name-value pair to match in policy rules.
After you’re familiar with the predefined data patterns and how they work, you can modify the predefined data patterns as desired or define your own new data pattern. You can then view and filter incidents to determine if the matched content to your configured data patterns poses a risk to your organization.
