Data Access Field Mapping

The following shows an example of how data access events map differently from various cloud providers to CIM data model field names.

See the Data Access data model for full field descriptions.


File upload success example

The file upload success event from Google Drive and Box is a good way to see a common event and how each cloud provider maps to CIM data model field names.

Google Drive upload success

A sample Google Drive user successfully uploading a file follows:

Click expand or collapse to show or hide the example.

Upload field mapping

Using the file upload success from Google Drive as a base sample, and comparing it to a similar event from Box is a good way to see the similarities and differences per common CIM field names.
