Scan setup


Using Privacera Discovery, you can configure scans and set threshold scores to determine if a resource should be reviewed for non-compliance. This is done from the Scan Setup page.

To view the Scan Setup page, select Discovery > Scan Setup from the navigation menu.

The Scan Setup page displays the following information:

  • Application Status: The total number of enabled and disabled applications.

  • System Classification: This allows you to set the global value at what percentage match will cause the scanned resource to be classified. To automatically classify the associated tags, enable the auto classification feature using the enable/disable toggle.

  • Minimum Review: This allows you to set the global minimum value that will send the tagged resources to the Pending Review status under classification for manual verification. Tag scores falling below the review score are ignored.

  • Reduce Score: If a column has empty data but is meta-tagged with 100% score, this reduces the score with the value that is set here. For example: If it is configured to 50, then the final score set for that column tag will be 50 and it will be re-evaluated based on the auto-classification and review score threshold.

    If you toggle the reduce score enable, it will reduce. If you toggle the reduce score enable, it will reduce the score of the associated meta tag. If you disable the reduce score feature, the meta tags will not be auto-classified.

  • Rescan Type: For file system and database applications, scanning options include:

    • Incremental: Only scans resources that have been modified since the previous scan.

    • Scan: Rescans the resource completely regardless of previous scans.
