CA DataMinder Tuesday Tip: Understanding classification processing published by Andrew Devine, Senior Support Engineer 30 July 2013.

To set up a Document Classification, you must first define your classification in the user policy. This classification can be any type of document identifiable by its text content. For example, you may want to identify airline reservation Web sites or email customer complaints. Then, you associate the classification with a Document Classifier trigger. These triggers are available in all Capture and Control folders. For example, you can use a capture trigger to capture the complaint email.

When the policy changes are complete, CA DLP detects each Web page, uploaded file, email or attachment that matches the document classification and reacts accordingly.

To set up a document classification in the user policy

1. Define your classification:
a. Go to the System Settings, Document Classifications policy folder.
b. Expand the Classification folder you want.
c. Enter a name for the classification and set the Configuration setting to 'Generic' or 'Travel'.
d. If setting up a generic document classification, configure Parameters 1 to 7.

Classification parameter processing order.

Classification parameters are searched for in the following order; Firsts the Boolean tests are done. If any of these return false, then the rest of the searches are not carried out.

Tests are carried out in the following order:
Parameter 8
Parameter 1
Parameter 2
Parameter 5

Next the score based searches are processed.
Parameter 3 + 4

Next the score is added up. If it fires then a Parameter 7 search is performed.

2. Define your Document Classifier trigger.
3. Save the policy changes.
