A Sensitive Data Governance administrator has access to all pages of Sensitive Data Governance and they can define, edit, and delete policies, templates, and sensitive data and edit compliance settings. They also have access to inSync reports.

Note: A Sensitive Data Governance administrator cannot view the Sensitive Data Governance dashboard and the count of file violations and email violations.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that discovery is completed for all the org-level apps (SharePoint,  Teams, Public folder, and Shared Drives).

  3. In the top-right corner, click New Administrator. The New Administrator window appears.

  4. On the Summary tab, provide the appropriate information for each field.
    • Name: Type the name of the new administrator.
