Add/Edit Complex Group Dialog Box
Use the Add Complex Group or Edit Complex Group dialog box to create or edit a custom Complex content group.
Complex groups use Boolean expressions to select data for which you want to control access. These groups can include any combination of built-in or custom content groups (File Type Detection, Keywords, Pattern, Document Properties, and Oracle IRM groups) linked with any number of the standard logical operators. Each content group is treated as a single filter criterion that can be included in your Boolean expression. By using multiple content groups, you can create complex filters to identify sensitive content of data copied to removable drives and plug-n-play storage devices or transmitted over the network.
The following logical operators are supported:
You can use parentheses to modify the precedence of operators and force some parts of an expression to be evaluated before others. Nested criteria enclosed in parentheses are evaluated in inner-to-outer order. Multiple levels of nesting are supported. A complex group can contain a maximum of 30 content groups.
The Add Complex Group or Edit Complex Group dialog box contains the following elements:
Specifies the name of the group.
Specifies a description for the group.
Use Add to add the desired content groups from the Content Database. Click Add to open the Content Groups dialog box. In the Content Groups dialog box, under Content Database, select the desired content group, and then click OK. You can select multiple content groups by holding down the SHIFT key or the CTRL key while clicking them. To view information about a content group, select the desired group, and then click View Group. The content groups you added appear in the Criteria column in the Add Complex group dialog box. Each content group you add is treated as a single filter criterion that can be included in your Boolean expression.
Use Insert to insert a content group from the Content Database before the currently selected group in the Criteria column. To do so, click Insert to open the Content Groups dialog box. In the Content Groups dialog box, under Content Database, select the desired content group, and then click OK.
Use View to view information about the currently selected group in the Criteria column.
Deletes the selected group from the Criteria column.
Use NOT to join each content group you select with the logical NOT operator. To do so, select the desired group in the Criteria column, and then select the appropriate check box in the Not column.
Use AND/OR to join each content group you select with the logical AND or OR operator. To do so, select the desired group in the Criteria column, and then click either AND or OR in the appropriate list in the AND/OR column.
Clears the current list of content groups in the Criteria column.
Validates your expression. If the expression was defined incorrectly (for example, an opening parenthesis was not matched with a closing parenthesis), you receive an error message.
