Classification settings include defining who can modify classification labels and any classification integrations. This topic contains the following sections:
- Classification Labels Tab
- Classification Policies Tab
- Classification Settings Tab
Classification Labels Tab
|Name||Required. A classification label name must be unique and cannot be more than 40 characters. The name appears in a colored pill when users select or preview a file or folder with the classification label applied.|
|Color||Required. The default is Yellow.|
|Definition||Required. Additional information that is displayed to users in the web application (but not the Box apps on iOS or Android nor in Box Drive) when users select or preview a file or folder with the classification label applied.|
Classification Policies Tab
A classification policy has 3 parts:
- Policy name and description, how you identify the policy
- Policy criteria, where you define what you look for to apply the policy
- Policy label, what classification label gets applied to a file when the policy applies to the file
Policy Name and Description
|Classification Policy Name||Enter a unique and descriptive name. Limited to 80 characters. Plain text only.|
|Description.||Optional. Enter additional information that summarizes what the policy does. Limited to 250 characters. Plain text only.
Because of potential security issues, the Description field cannot contain hyperlinks.
Policy criteria includes folder criteria and file criteria.
|Apply to all folders||The policy will apply to files in all folders in your enterprise.|
|Only selected folders||The policy will apply to files only in folders you select and in all sub-folders of those folders. To select folders:
The File Criteria section allows you to define either the file types (by file extension) or one or more condition blocks of data types as criteria for the policy to be applied.
- Specify file types to enter one or more file extensions.
- Specify data types (default) to define up to 3 blocks of one or more data types.
Only one of file types or data types can be selected per classification policy. The default for a new policy is to start with one empty data type selected.
Define file types by entering one or more file extensions.
Determines which file types the classification policy will be applied to. File types are determined by file extension.
To enter file extensions, type one or more file extensions separated by commas.
Define data type conditions in the condition blocks. You can add more conditions, up to 20 total, by clicking Add Condition. A condition defines a data type and how that data type should match in a document for the policy to be applied.
You can add additional condition blocks by clicking Add More. When a classification policy has more than one condition block, select AND (default) or OR between all the condition blocks (they must all be the same) to determine policy matching:
- AND means all file criteria must match for the policy to be applied.
- OR means one or more of the file criteria must match for the policy to be applied.
|When a file contains the following conditions||Determines which of the conditions must match for a policy to be applied. Select:
|Data Type||Determines what will be searched for in the content. You can select one of each discrete InfoType, plus one or more user-generated term sets, up to 20 total. For numerical values in the InfoType selections, enter numerals only, no spaces, hyphens, periods, or other non-numeric characters.
Determines the detection accuracy with which Box finds matching Info Types in your content. It is intended to indicate the likelihood that a piece of data matches a given Info Type. Select:
Confidence is determined by matching elements that a detection result contains. Matching elements considered per Info Type vary, including, but not limited to, pattern, checksum, and context such as hotwords that indicate the presence of certain Info Types, a column header of a structured file, and so on. Generally, for confidence to hit High or Medium, the piece of data needs to have multiple matching elements, especially context.
Selecting High may result in more false negatives, while selecting Low may result in more false positives.
|Unique Count||Determines the number of unique instances that need to match for the condition to match. You would enter 0, 1, or 2 values depending on what you select in the With column.|
|Apply This Label||Determines which classification label get applied to the file or folder when there is a policy match.|
Determines what happens when a classification label should get applied by the policy to a file that already has an existing classification label. Select from:
Classification Settings Tab
Determines which user role(s) can add, modify, or delete classifications on files or folders. Select from:
Microsoft Information Protection
Determines the status of Microsoft Information Protection integration. When enabled, mapped Microsoft sensitivity labels are converted to Box classification labels when files and new versions of files are uploaded.
If you disable Microsoft Information Protection integration, you will lose all of your selections and mapping information because Box does not retain information from integrated services once the integration ends.
Determines whether files with Box classification labels mapped from sensitivity labels can have those labels updated by anyone, including users, the folder cascade, or auto-classification.
|Set Default Mapping||
Determines if a default classification label will be applied to a new file and a new version of a file when:
|Mapped Labels||Determines the mapping of Microsoft sensitivity labels to Box classification labels.|
