Collaboration Rules

The Collaboration rule detects collaboration events in the service. When this rule is applied, it allows you to implement secure collaboration, and it controls how users share content.

Secure Collaboration

You can enable your users to collaborate and share content with individuals outside of your organization while controlling what kind of information can be shared. This allows you to act on file uploads or updates to collaboration files if the files contain information that violates your content rules (such as medical information or credit card numbers). For more information, DLP Policy Response Actions.clipboard_e7f9db0450a2e617d80237e2746bb83c9.png

Files or Folders

Collaboration for Files and Folders

You can share files or folders with external users using email, domain, or glob pattern. Based on the role, the different access levels can be provided to the collaborators. The DLP policy associated with file or folder Collaboration detects and removes public links on files and folders and promotes secure collaboration. For more details, see Collaboration Policies for Files and Folders.

Collaboration for Shared links

You can create a link from any folder or file and share that link to external users. Based on the role, you can provide different access levels to the collaborators. The DLP Collaboration policy associated with shared links detects and removes sensitive information from files or folders associated with a shared link and stops the file from being shared. For more details, see Collaboration Policies for Shared Links.
