Create Exact Data Matching (EDM) Classification

Exact Data Match (EDM) fingerprints allow you to define classification criteria for the user records exported from a database (in rows and columns) to a .csv or .tsv file. You can select the required rows and columns to classify your file.

NOTE: Before you create classification using EDM, you need to create a Fingerprint and generate an Index. For details, see Create Fingerprint.

To create a Classification using EDM:

  1. Log In to Skyhigh CASB.
  2. Go to Policy > DLP Policies > Classifications.
  3. Click Actions > Create Classification
  4. Configure the following:
    • Classification Name. Enter a name for this classification. For example, EDM1. Enter an optional description to describe its use or purpose.
    • Category. Select a Category from the list. For this example, select Health Care.
    • Conditions. For IF, select Exact Data Matching. The Exact Data Matching cloud card displays.
