Importing a File Attribute List

Use this option if you have a properly-formatted .xml file containing the file attribute lists. You can generate the file by exporting the file attribute lists from the Hosted Email Security administrator console.

  1. Go to Outbound Protection > Policy Objects > DLP Data Identifiers.
  2. Click the File Attribute tab.
  3. Click Import and then locate the .xml file containing the file attribute lists.
  4. Click Open.

    A message appears, informing you if the import was successful.


    Every file attribute list is identified by its name field in the .xml file. This name is a unique internal name that does not display on the administrator console.

    If the file contains a customized file attribute list that already exists, Hosted Email Security overwrites the existing file attribute list. If the file contains any predefined file attribute list, Hosted Email Security skips the predefined file attribute list while importing the remaining customized file attribute lists.
