During Data Loss Prevention detection processes metadata (file properties such as title, subject, author, etc) is not detected and reported on after the server is initially setup causing some keywords to not get detected.


By default metadata is not detected.  This option must be turned on in Advanced Server Settings.


To detect metadata from Microsoft Office and PDF files

  1. Go to System > Servers and Detectors
  2. Select the Detection Server name
  3. Go to Server Settings
  4. Set the ContentExtraction.EnableMetaData = on

Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) content is not detected.

Enabling this metadata detection option can cause false positives.
