By Task (HDFS)

This is the first tab which is displayed on the UI once Results page is clicked in navigation panel. This screen displays the information for all the instances of the tasks, based on the cluster selected in Select Cluster drop-down. The screen divided into two panels. Each panel display information for the selected instance of the task, and it displays the overall information, status, and the results of the tasks.

  1. Task Instances 
    This panel displays information for the all the instances of the task that have been executed to detect sensitive data in the files. It displays ID (system generated), name of the task, status of the task, start and end time, Remediated, Instance Hostname etc., information for the task.


    There are few other common functionalities through which you can sort the values in the column header. To know more, visit HDFS Common Controls.

    1. Pause: This functionality allows you to pause a running task for a while. Follow the below steps for pausing a task.

      1. Select a running task in the Task Instances panel and click Pause button in the Actions column.

        A pop-up appears with a message saying, “Do you want to pause this task?” with option “YES” or “NO”.

        Click YES, if you want to pause the task, else click NO.

    2. View Information: Click View to view any information about the related task. This redirects to the Task Instance panel in the Task Definition tab under Task screen.

    3. Search: Enter the value in the Search field to search for a specific task ID or a task name.

    4. Re-execute: To re-execute a task again, click the Re-execute button in Actions column. This will trigger the selected instance of the task again.

    5. Refresh: To refresh the Task Instances panel with updated information, click this button. It refreshes the data in the panel with the latest data.

    6. Clear Filter: To remove any applied filters from the headers of the Task Instances panel, click this button.

    7. Resume: If the task gets failed at any point during the execution or paused; this happens when the target database is stopped for few minutes, but IDP or tomcat is in running state. To resume it again, click the Resume button in the Actions column. This will re-start the task where it was initially failed or paused.

    8. Queue For Results Review: Click this button to queue the task for results review workflow. Using this option, a user can queue the task to review it manually.

      *Note:  The Queue For Results Review button will not appear if encryption process is performed on data. To Know more about results review workflow in both Linux and Windows environment, refer to section Enable Results Review in Linux and Enable Results Review in Windows.

      Once the task has been queued for review, the value for the review can be seen in the Task Instances panel under the column name Remediated column which specify the values as YES or NO.


      To queue the task for review workflow automatically, set the value of AUTO QUEUE FOR RESULTS REVIEW to YES in Admin application under SETTINGS.

    9. Reviewed Results: Check the Reviewed Results checkbox, to see if the results for the selected task have been reviewed or not.

  2. Overview Panel
    This panel gives exhaustive information about the selected task and provides all the necessary information needed while reviewing a task instance. The tab in this panel depends on the Task Type selected in the By Task screen. This panel provide information about the sensitive types discovered during the detection and encryption process.


    This panel shows information under the following tabs:

    1. Task Overview
      This tab displays the summary of the task as per the selection made in the Task Instances panel.

      1. Details

      2. Include Scan Location

        This tab displays the list of all directory locations which have been selected for scanning. It displays additional information such as the structure and the domain of the selected location. The Scan Location column displays the absolute path of the selected directory of the file.

      3. Exclude Scan Location
        This tab displays the list of all selected scan locations or the file extensions which need to be excluded while scanning process. The Scan Location column display the absolute path of the selected file or directory location.

      4. Sensitive Type Details

        This tab displays the list of all Sensitive Type associated with a task as per the selection made in the Task Instances panel.


        *Note: In case Metadata Discovery task type, this tab is replaced by Metadata Type Details displaying Name and Type of data as their columns. There are separate interfaces of Overview Panel for Detection and Protection Options.

    2. Result Overview

      This tab gives a graphical summary of the detection and encryption results for the selected task in the Task Instance panel. The results of this tab changes based on the Task Type selected.

        1. The first chart shows the number of structured or unstructured files detected.

        2. The second chart shows the count of sensitive and non-sensitive files encountered as well as the total number of files skipped during the process. Unsupported files, zip files, etc., are few of the cases due to which the files are skipped.

        3. The fourth chart shows the count of sensitive data type group. Hovering over it displays the count of that file type.
