Setting Up Nightfall

Before you use the scan endpoint, there are a number of actions to do within the Nightfall dashboard to get your environment set up properly.

  • See Creating an API Key to see how to create the necessary Authentication token for making API calls.

  • See Creating a Detector for how to define your own custom logic for detecting sensitive data

  • See Creating Detection Rules for how to aggregate Detectors for use in the scan endpoint

  • See Creating Policies for how to set up common workflows that combine your Detection Rules with remediation actions such as alerting.
