How to Perform Detection in Azure

The Detection process allows user to perform discovery in the Azure system. This process helps you to fetch sensitive information across Azure system.


Following are the pre-requisites:

  1. Controller must be installed. For detailed information about the installation process, refer Install DSM Administrator in Linux and Install DSM Administrator in Windows.

  2. Azure data or Databricks and Cloud IDP must be Installed. To know more on how to install AzureData/Databricks and Cloud IDP, refer Install AzureData IDP/Install Databricks IDP and Install Cloud IDP.

The Azure data (HDInsight) or Databricks IDP must be installed based on the distribution used by the customer.

Steps to Perform Detection

The following section of this page outlines the step-by-step procedure to discover sensitive information stored on Azure.

  1. The first step is to create a policy in the PK Protect. Policy allows to create a set of Sensitive Data Types which are presented in the buckets. To know about how to create a policy, refer Hadoop & Files Policy.

  2. The next step in the process of performing Detection is to create a task. The Task screen enables a user to select buckets of the objects in which sensitive information is stored. To know more about each field in the Task screen, refer Create Task in Azure.
