Dear All , 

Can you guys provide me with an IDM Profile ? 

Its better if I get both the files :

1.File before Indexing

2.File after Indexing

So that I can get to understand creating IDM profile better and can use the files for testing purposes.

Will appreciate your support.

 I think the best to understand IDM profile is to create some by yourself using DLP solution. It is quite easy and straightforward so you wont have any issue to do it.

Hi Stephanie,

I've already tried making a few simple ones but I fail . It would be very helpful if anyone could provide me the Index file and the file before indexing so I can study them carefully for better understanding.

Looking at the file from the IDM index process isn't going to help you much.

All the data is hashed or encrypted for data protection and speed of use.

Are you having problems just creating the IDM or getting successful detection or both?

@ JGT , I want to see an example of how to create an IDM document. For example , we have a text file with all the data in it (thats a pure document file). I want too see how the same file looks like after it is prepared to be indexed. As IDM needs pure data document, would like to see how the data in a file is edited to create a successful IDM doc.
