Behavior of trailing '/' in data source URL/URIs

:

If a data source URL/URI has a trailing /, then Privacera Discovery will scan the folders in the bucket individually. If the data source URL/URI does not have a trailing /, then the folders in the bucket will be scanned together.

For example, say the following three folders are in an S3 bucket:

  • A

  • A_1

  • A_1_2

If these three folders need to be scanned individually, then the URL/URI in the data source should be listed as:

  • s3://bucket/A/

  • s3://bucket/A_1/

  • s3://bucket/A_1_2/

If the three folders need to be scanned together, then the URL/URI in the data source should be listed as:

  • s3://bucket/A

Or, if you want to scan A_1 and A_1_2, then the URL/URI should be listed as:

  • s3://bucket/A_1

This will scan both s3://bucket/A_1 and s3://bucket/A_1_2.
