Modify the Brainspace Native File Whitelist

This topic describes how to modify the default Brainspace native file whitelist when creating a new dataset with a native connector and for an existing dataset with a native connector.

The default Brainspace native file whitelist is tested and verified. Modifying the default Brainspace whitelist could cause issues when building datasets. If you encounter issues when building datasets with native connectors, see Native Ingest Troubleshooting.

Important

The whitelist is global. Modifications to the whitelist affect all ingests for all datasets that use the native file analysis (NFA) plugin throughout the Brainspace application, not just a specific connector or dataset.

Note

Modifying the Brainspace whitelist could cause issues when building a dataset.
