Overview of SaaS Security API Dashboard

The SaaS Security API Dashboard lets you view the data and content-related activity for the connectors that you configured for your account. The screen contains several widgets that provide visibility for the different data violation criteria for the specific connectors in Data Protection rules (Security > SaaS Security API > Data Protection) and for the general SaaS app traffic. The screen also lets you filter according to a specific time frame to drill-down and focus on the relevant data violations and events in your account.

Getting Started with the SaaS Security API Dashboard

The SaaS Security API Dashboard screen shows the total number of data violations and SaaS app events over the time range.

The maximum date range for the SaaS Security API Dashboard is 90 days.

Working with SaaS Security API Dashboard Widgets

The SaaS Security API Dashboard widgets give you a high-level overview of Data Protection rule violations and connector related events for SaaS app traffic.
