Create File Type Detector

A File Type detector allows you to select MIME (multi-purpose mail extension) types. The selected MIME types are considered as tokens and Nightfall scans your data to identify if there is anything that matches the MIME token. If a match is found, it is flagged as sensitive data.

To create a File Type Detector:

  1. Navigate to the Detectors section from the left pane.

  2. Click + Custom Detector and select File Type.

  1. Enter a name for your custom Detector in the Name field.

  2. (Optional) Enter a description for the Detector in the Description field.

  3. Click Add File Type and select an MIME type.

  4. (Optional) Repeat step 3 to add multiple MIME types to your rule.

  5. (Optional) Click the delete icon to delete an MIME type, if you do not require it.

  6. Click Add.
