Data Collections

Open Raven uses Data Collections to define what it scans for and identifies. A Data Collection is a set of Data Classes, or a collection of sensitive data types, such as:

  • Privacy
  • Credentials
  • Financial
  • Health.

Open Raven includes a number of Default Data Collections (which you'll find under "Configuration"). However, you can create custom Data Collections by selecting pre-defined Data Classes.

Each Data Collection has a name and description and is associated with a specific Reference ID. Note that Reference IDs are unique. You can create a Data Collection for immediate use and deactivate it later by specifying its Status.
