Use custom or extended file properties in Office and
PDF documents as match criteria in asset policy rules on SaaS Security API.
For data governance and protection of information,
if you use classification labels or embed tags in MS Office and
PDF documents to include more information for audit and tracking
purposes, you can create a file property data pattern to match on
the metadata or attributes that are a part of the custom or extended
properties in the file. Regardless of whether you use an automated
classification mechanism such as Titus or require users to add a
tag, you can specify a name-value pair to match on a custom or extended
property embedded in the file.
For example, you can define
a file property data pattern to create an incident when a user on
your network uploads a file labeled as Customer Data to a folder
that has external collaborators.

rule in Step 6 below, a boolean OR match is used in the match criteria.
Select the predefined category with which you want to
associate this file property.
