Privacera Platform



The Classifications page displays all of the resources that Privacera Discovery has tagged.

Resources are displayed in the Classifications page if their score falls within the range defined in Scan Setup. The default score range is 40 to 70. If a resource falls within this range, it is also tagged.

If the score is below the minimum value (default 40), the tag is ignored and not applied to the resource.
