How to Perform Detection in BigQuery

The Detection process allows user to perform discovery in the BigQuery module. This process helps you to fetch sensitive information across BigQuery 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. BigQuery IDP must be Installed. To know more, refer Install BigQuery IDP in Linux.

Steps to Perform Detection

The following section of this page outlines the step-by-step procedure to discover sensitive information stored in BigQuery system.

  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 data. 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 the objects in which sensitive information is stored. To know more about each field of the Task screen, refer Create Task in BigQuery.
