There are a number of steps required to enable this feature, which will determine:

  • What is scanned for (e.g. Email Addresses, Phone Numbers)
  • Where is scanned (e.g. particular Spaces)
  • When a scan will take place (on page operation and/or scheduled)


It's recommended that you configure the extractions, scope and automation rules before you run any scans.

This helps to prevent the need to re-scan the instance.


The first thing to configure is the extractions, these are the patterns which documents are scanned for.

An example of an extraction might be as follows:

NameIP - IPv4
DescriptionInternet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network.



As you can see, it describes a particular type of sensitive data which we want to detect.

Extractions are either:

  • System-provided
  • Manually created

Before Extractions are searched for during analysis, they must first be enabled.

How To

  1. Settings > Compliance Configuration > Detection > Extractions
  2. Find an extraction that suits your needs from a selection of pre-defined extractions and enable it using the toggle OR create a new extraction by clicking "Add Extraction" at the bottom of the page
  3. In the dialog, create a name, description and select an icon for your new extraction. In the extraction box, add a regular expression that captures the sensitive information. This will be validated against Java RE/2
  4. Click Create
  5. Find your new extraction in the list and enable it using the toggle
