Configuring Gmail Archiving

To include archived Gmail data in your NetGovern audit, you must create an Archiving job in the NetGovern Admin UI.

You can only archive the Gmail source data if you previously configured the connection and created the required location in the NetGovern Admin UI—see Configuring Gmail Connector.

Once the connection to Gmail has been configured and a Gmail Archive Storage location or Email (Gmail) Live Location has been created in the NetGovern Admin UI, Gmail can be selected as the source location for Archiving jobs.

To perform searches on archived Gmail content, configure and run an Indexing job first—see Configuring Indexing for Gmail. An Index Job is not required if you only want to archive Gmail data for compliance reasons, and do not intend to search the data.
It is not necessary to create a policy in NetGovern to guide this job.
