Selecting and Scheduling the OneDrive Data Classification Settings

To associate an application with a data classification service and set the schedule:

  1. Go to Admin > Applications.
  2. Scroll through the list or use the filter to find the application.
  3. Select the Edit icon on the application row.
  4. Select Next until you reach the Data Classification settings page.


    The entry fields vary by application type.

  5. Associate the application with a Central Data Classification Service. This service is responsible for running the Data Classification tasks. This field is disabled if the Central Data Classification wasn’t installed during the installation of the server.

  6. To disable data classification, delete the entry from the central data classification field.


    You can also disable data classification by setting the scheduler to be inactive, which is the default setting for data classification.

  7. If a central data classification service is selected, you can schedule a task.

  8. Select Next or Finish.

Data Privacy

A user can associate the application with a Central Data Classification Engine Service. This engine will be responsible for executed Data Privacy tasks.

Though using different processes for each, the Data Classification engine service is in charge for both Data Privacy and Data Classification discovery tasks.

You may choose the same service for both, or use a different one for each, to run them in parallel.


The fields on the Data Privacy step are the same as the Data Classification step.
