profiled email DGM

Created: 06 Sep 2013 | 4 comments


 when you create a profiled DGM using an EDM, you need to select one of your field as a key. but when you select email, dlp control this field to be in right format using this regexp (as described by online documentation) :


 unfortunately it is no more valid as there is more existing generic_tld (like .asia, .mobi, ...) now so some of my emails are rejected and i cannot monitor them. is there a way to update this  or define a custom rule to check email format ?

Try recreating the EDM index.

 it does not change. I recreate EDM and i have same email address not taken into account. we are using DLP v 11.6.2.

If you create the file as an EDM and do not specify the column as email, but as a string, then it will not perform the validation check as you describe, but will still match the email addresses.

 yes but if i remember how it works, in this case you cannot use it as a profiled DGM in order to manage list of people you want to cover with a policy.
