The Content Classification Engine (CCE) is a rule-driven content classification system that enables the generic labeling of files with metadata. This labeling enables key operations within FileCloud such as contextual file search and Data Leak Prevention.
CCE automates, streamlines, and strengthens the overall level of data leak prevention for an organization. Administrators and users can upload files and folders with the knowledge that they can be automatically classified according to their content, which helps ensure that sensitive data is immediately covered by the criteria outlined in the DLP plan. CCE rules are also applied retroactively to data that was uploaded before the rules were created, helping organizations protect legacy data.
Smart Classification is only available for files that are 1MB or larger.

CCE will only function properly if Solr has been configured and your storage has been indexed. Additionally, administrators must have created at least one set of metadata in order for the classification process to operate.
The CCE Crawler is an automated tool that classifies files and folders after a rule has been enabled. This helps to ensure that all content is classified according to the defined and enabled rules regardless of when the upload occurred or will occur.
Automating the Crawler
To control the automation of the classification process, as well as choosing when the crawler runs, administrators can use Cron Jobs.
The CCE crawler will not run unless manually enabled or executed by a Cron job.
To manually run the crawler, click the blue button on the row of the rule you would like the crawler to use for classification. The amount of time needed for the completion of the crawl will depend on the number and size of files being classified, as well as the complexity of enabled CCE rules.
