How to Perform Detection in MongoDB

The Detection process allows user to perform discovery in the MongoDB database.


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. NoSQL IDP must be Installed. To know more on how to install NoSQL IDP, refer Install NoSQL IDP.

Steps to Perform Detection

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

  1. The first step is to create a policy in the PK Protect. Policy allows you to create a set of Sensitive Data Types which are stored in the data source. To know more about each field, refer DBMS Policy.

  2. The second step is to create a connection in NoSQL Connection Manager screen. The connection is established between controller and the IDP in order to access the MongoDB, where data is kept. To know more about each field, refer MongoDB Connection.

  3. The last step in the process of performing Detection is to create a task. The Task screen enables a user to select locations of the saved data in which sensitive information is stored. To know more about each field, refer Create Task in MongoDB.

View Detection Results

Once the task is executed successfully, the results are generated which depict what all information in the selected data source were sensitive. A list of detailed information is displayed in the Results screen. To know more about each tab in the Results screen, refer MongoDB Results.
