Security settings let you classify a team or group as public or private, regulate its external sharing, and manage guest access.
You can apply security settings per team or group or use sensitivity tags to categorize while securing.
Note: A sensitivity mismatch can occur when the security settings of a team or group do not align with its sensitivity tag. Sensitivity mismatches display in gold on the Manage page and in the team and group details header. For detailed information on how you can resolve sensitivity mismatches, see Sensitivity mismatch.
Customize the security settings of a team or group
To apply security settings at the team or group level, select Manage from the sidebar. The security settings are located in the header of the team and group details:
Use the 3 drop-down menus in the header to set the security settings for that team or group.
Tip: Alternatively, you can apply a sensitivity tag from the header. In the example above, the General sensitivity tag applies the security settings attributed to that tag.
Use sensitivity tags
Use sensitivity tags to apply security settings to teams and groups while categorizing them based on their data sensitivity level at the same time.
When you create a sensitivity tag, you choose the combination of security settings you feel best represents that tag. The security settings of teams and groups are updated when a sensitivity tag is applied.
You can apply a sensitivity tag (and its security settings):
- From the team and group details.
- As a bulk action.
- With ShareGate's automated features.
For details on each, see Apply sensitivity tags.
