Decide which Structured Data policy template you intend to use to create your content filtering policy.
The pattern fields in your data source file must correspond to the data types that your Structured Data policy template uses.
For example, assume that you want to create a policy with the Customer Data Protection template. You should use the pattern fields that correspond to social security number, credit card number, phone, and email.
Symantec Messaging Gateway validates the file when you upload it and lets you know if the upload is successful. If the upload is successful, Symantec Messaging Gateway indexes the file. If the upload is unsuccessful, an error message appears that indicates the reason for failure.
A view lets you specify which fields in a record you want Symantec Messaging Gateway to search for when it evaluates a message. You also specify how many of those fields must be in a message to constitute an occurrence.
You can have one or more views for a record. For example, one view might contain the Credit Card number pattern, the Email address pattern, and the IP address pattern. Another view for that same record might consist of the Credit Card number pattern, the US Phone pattern, and the US ZIP Code pattern. Multiple views let you create multiple content filtering policies from a single record or multiple conditions for the same policy.
You must define at least one view before you can use the record in content filtering policies.
