This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello everyone,

While testing SDLP I need to create some policies and response rules based on Active Directory, e.g.:

1) Restrict web-mail sending as attachment for particular user in AD

2) Allow specific AD user to copy files from endpoint to USB device


How should I make it? Does SDLP require specific settings to be applied to do this?

Thank you. What did you mean under integrate with AD? I have configured krb5.ini with my AD servers data and enabled AD authentification on Enforce server. This is it? How to configure specific policies then?

You should searxh Administrator's manual for: Detecting identity from a synchronized directory group server.

  1. In DLP console you should go first to System > Settings > Group Directories and there press Create New Connectiom button. Fill out the fields accordingly.
  2. Then use Manage > User Groups and add groups based on your group directory connection from previous step.
  3. Then go to Manage > Policies and choose (or create new one). And then use Group tab.
