Cloud sharing over time reference

Overview

The Cloud sharing over time graph on the Risk Exposure dashboard shows when files are made publicly available across your organization for up to the last 90 days.

To see when files are added to a cloud sync folder on an endpoint, see the Endpoint activity over time graph or the Endpoint activity tab of the All activity view.

To view the Cloud sharing over time tile, sign in to the Code42 console.

For more information about the Risk Exposure dashboard, see: 

For more information about how to use these dashboards, see Review unusual file activity with the Risk Exposure dashboard.

Considerations

You must connect at least one cloud service to Code42 to see cloud-related file activity. 

For permissions, licensing, and visibility considerations for the Risk Exposure dashboard, see Risk Exposure dashboard reference
