Input any text to classify with your Detection Rules. Generate sample data here.
This step is optional, but highly recommended. If you leave it blank, Nightfall will use a default detection rule, scanning for likely Credit Card Numbers, US Social Security Numbers, and API Keys. Setting your own detection rule will allow you to leverage the full power of Nightfall's best-in-class detection engine. Customize your detection settings with our pre-built detectors (spanning PII, PHI, PCI, and much more), custom detectors, exclusion/context rules, and more. Sign up for a Nightfall Developer Platform account here if you don't have one.
Create an API key on your Nightfall Dashboard. If you don't have an account, sign up.
Your Detection Rules specify what you want Nightfall to detect, e.g. credit card numbers. Create a Detection Rule on your Nightfall Dashboard and copy over its UUID. Specify up to 10 Detection Rules, one per line.

Paste URLs to files that you would like Nightfall to scan, one per line. For example, these can be share links to publicly accessible files on Google Drive or S3. Please ensure the link goes directly to the raw file you wish to scan, not a webpage or parent folder. Explore sample files in the following GitHub repo.
Max aggregate upload size of 10 MB across all files that are uploaded directly below. Try compressing files if they exceed this limit.
File scans are run asynchronously, so you'll receive your scan results here as a CSV attachment.
Nightfall is the industry's first cloud-native data protection platform. Nightfall uses machine learning to discover, classify, and protect sensitive data like PII, PHI, and credentials. Nightfall integrates natively with cloud apps like Slack, GitHub, Google Drive, Confluence, and Jira, as well as provides a set of APIs for embedding best-in-class content inspection technology anywhere.
The Nightfall Developer Platform is a set of APIs developers can use to build data classification and protection into any application or service. This utility is powered by the Developer Platform. It's free to get started with the Developer Platform. Sign up or read the API Docs.
The report is sent via email as a CSV export. The report shows exactly what types of sensitive data are found and where in your file instance, so you can easily track it down. The fields include the item type (e.g. File), file ID, file permalink, the Detector (e.g. Credit Card Number), detection confidence (e.g. Very Likely), the character locations of the sensitive data, and more. The email will also contain a high level summary of the scan.

The following is an example of a Jira scan report imported into Airtable for demonstration purposes. You'll receive the report as a CSV file sent as an attachment via email (click Download CSV below to see an example). Fields will vary slightly based on the application being scanned.
Without inputting your own Nightfall API key, this free utility will have the following limitations: up to 500 items (e.g. files) or 500 MB of data will be scanned, and the first 100 sensitive findings will be outputted in the report.
These limitations don't apply if you input your own Nightfall API key, so we highly recommend doing so. In other words, with your own API key, you'll be able to run a complete scan. You can create an API key on your Nightfall Dashboard.
If you don't have an account to create an API key, you can sign up for the Nightfall Developer Platform for free (no credit card required). Learn more about the Developer Platform in the API Docs.
The max size for individual files for this scanner is 20 MB. The service may filter high volumes of noise in the event that your detection rules may benefit from further tuning, and scans may terminate early if they are generating a very high volume of results, so that you can fine tune your detection rules prior to re-running the scan and consuming data volume. Similarly, results may be truncated to respect the max file size of email attachments and so files are openable.
