Spirion Search API

Spirion provides an Application Programming Interface (API) that allows developers to create their own rules and definitions for finding personal information and sensitive data. This provides functionality to create logic to find a pattern of numbers or characters near certain other keywords if certain other keywords are not in a file.

File Modification

Download the SearchDLL folder and modify the SearchDLL.cpp file as appropriate.

  • This file is self-documenting and is only supported when building with Visual Studio 2015.
    • During testing – you will need to build the release version of your dll – only that will work with your application

Spirion Policy

Configure the following setting in a System Policy applied to the endpoint(s).

  • Initialization > Plugins > Enable to 1

 

File Placement

Place the compiled .dll in a subfolder of the folder where IdentityFinder.exe is installed.

  • The folder should be named "Plugins" or placed in a folder that the full path is defined in the following setting in a System Policy applied to the endpoint(s).
    • Initialization > Plugins > Path

 

On the Console's > Admin > Sensitive Data Types screen you select to Add then for the type select Search API.

​ ​

For results of this type to appear in the console, the custom data type dll must also exist on every Windows endpoint performing a search for results of this type. The following settings in a policy applied to an endpoint must be configured.

Initialization > Plugins > Enable
Initialization > Plugins > Path

The Search API Page is used to select the custom data types that allow a client to search for data unique to your environment. The custom data type is in the form of a dll that you provide.
