Running a Data Collection Job for a Data Source in Activate

After you add a data source to a project, you can re-run a data collection job to update the information from the data source in Activate.

Note: For database data sources, the first 50 non-null rows in a column are crawled and analyzed.


  1. Open Sensitive data analysis as follows:
    1. From the navigation pane, expand Solutions, and then click Activate.

      The Activate page appears.

    2. Under Apps, click Sensitive data analysis.

      The Sensitive data analysis page appears.

  2. In the Projects table, in the project row, click the Actions button action_button, and then click Details.
  3. In the Data Sources table, in the data source row, click the Actions button action_button, and then click Details.
  4. Above Active jobs, click Start data collection.

    Note: For database data sources and Exchange User Mailbox data sources, a full data collection job starts. For other data sources, the Start data collection dialog box appears.

  5. Choose the type of data collection job to run:
    • To update data that is new or that has changed since the previous data collection job, next to Job type, click Incremental.
    • To update all of the data with the latest data from the data source, next to Job type, click Full.
  6. Click Start Data Collection.

    A new row appears in the Active jobs table with the progress of the active job.
