Configuring Indexing for Gmail

NetGovern eDiscoveryaudit can include data in an external Gmail location. To set up the Indexing and Archiving jobs required to make Gmail content available and searchable in a NetGovern eDiscoveryaudit, you must have configured the Gmail connector—see Configuring Gmail Connector.

When 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 Indexing and Archiving jobs.

The Gmail Index job must be set up and run in order to search archive data in Gmail. Any remediation jobs running in NetGovern Search, can then also discover the Gmail content. When the Gmail Index job is configured, messages will be indexed according to the criteria and schedule set.

IMPORTANT
Indexing and Archiving jobs must be configured in order to make the Gmail content available in NetGovern audit.
Indexing is performed to make the data searchable. If you intend to search the archive data, the Gmail Index job must be set up and run prior to the Gmail Archive job—see Configuring Gmail Archiving.
NOTE
It is not necessary to create a policy in NetGovern to guide this job.
