About Applications#

This section contains how to connect, edit and delete applications.

Terminology#

A datasource is a collection of data stored in a third-party application such as Microsoft SQL, AWS S3, or Databricks. PrivaceraCloud integrates with your datasource to control access or scan for sensitive data.

Datasources are organized into applications.

An application is a configuration for a data resource or authentication resource to be linked to your PrivaceraCloud account.

You will provide target and type specific properties for the target resource such as location address (URL), and authentication credentials to that resource.

Most properties are provided in a dialog for the specific type of resource. Additional custom properties can be added using a key/value pair syntax.

The set of properties can be exported to a JSON properties file.  This file can then be reimported at a later time or can be used as a template for other applications.

An authentication resource can be a connection to directory service for data access users, or for portal users.
