Reporting on Classification Hits

Purpose

Once files are classified using the classification policies saved in the system, the classified files are searchable by their classifications on the Files tab and Reports tab. When searching for files, several fields can be added to display not only the name of the classification triggered by a file, but also details regarding the content within the file that triggered the classification policy to begin with. Once the search or query is performed, the details for the classification file contents display directly on the screen showing data such as, the content that triggered the classification policy and even the rule within that classification policy that was triggered by that content.

The 6 Classification Hit Fields

There a 6 classification hit fields that can be added to any files search or reports query:

  • Classification Hit – File content that triggered the classification policy
  • Classification Hit Confidence – Confidence level of file content that triggered the classification policy
  • Classification Hit Policy – The name of the classification policy that the file content triggered
  • Classification Hit Rule – The name of the rule that was triggered by the file content of the classification policy
  • Classification Hit Leading Words – File content that appears just before the content that triggered the classification policy
  • Classification Hit Trailing Words – File content that appears just after the content that triggered the classification policy

Reporting on Classification Hits

While the query is being performed, the classification hit fields can be added to the search criteria before searching. It is important to note, that if a file is classified with multiple classification policies, the file will appear in the results duplicated for as many classifications as the file has tagged. For example, if the same 1 file has 3 classification policies, this file will appear 3 times in the file results but contain different data within the classification hit fields added.
