    Recommended Least Privilege User Approach

    To reduce the risk of data loss or privileged account abuse, the Target credentials provided for the intended Target should only be granted read-only access to the exact resources and data that require scanning. Never grant full user access privileges or unrestricted data access to any application if it is not required.

  4. Click Test. If ER2 can connect to the Target, the button changes to a Commit button.
  5. Click Commit to add the Target.

  1. Set Up Dropbox as a Target location.
  2. In the Select Locations section, select your Dropbox Target location and click Edit.
  3. In the Edit Dropbox Location dialog box, enter the path to scan. Use the following syntax:

    Path Syntax
    Specific folder <folder_name>
    Specific file <[folder_name/]file_name.txt>
  4. Click on Dropbox Account Authorization and follow the on-screen instructions. Enter the Access Code obtained into the Access Code field.
