Configuring the data locations

The Evidence Management system uses the CSV files for collecting the evidence data. The CSV files must be located in the network share of your computer that hosts the Data Processing Service component.

You must configure the network share path where the CSV file is located and provide credentials to access the file.


If you change the data location configuration, then you must synchronize the DPS with the latest configuration. You can synchronize DPS using the Sync Configuration option from the Settings > General > Data Processing Service view.

To configure the data location

  1. Go to Settings > General.

  2. In the General view, on the left panel, click System Configuration > Data Locations.

  3. On the right panel, click Add.

  4. In the Add Data Location dialog box, provide the following information:

    Network share Configuration

    Type the name and description for the evidence provider.

    Provide the share path where the CSV file is located.


    Select the domain of the share path where the CSV file is located.

    Type the user name and password to access the network share path.

  5. Click OK to save.
