If you set up an Amazon Macie job and choose to use all managed data identifiers, and then you set it to run on a schedule, will it start including more and more managed data identifiers if and when more get added by AWS?
It looks like passwords are not [one of the managed identifiers](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/macie/latest/user/managed-data-identifiers.html). Is there a recommendation for how to create a custom identifier that has a good balance of false positives and false negatives? I see an SO answer with many RegEx examples for passwords: https://stackoverflow.com/a/21456918 I guess this could be combined with Macie's custom identifiers capability of only showing results that have a certain word within a certain proximity. Just trying to see what has given other people success?
Can Macie consolidate the findings across various regions and report from one central location (like Security Hub), or does it have to be enabled region wise?
So I have started using the Macie service to do some data classification for a project I am building. I originally tried it with some JSON data that was put into a text file that contained US SSN numbers. I ran the Macie service to have it try and find this data and the scan did not return any findings. Next I figured that I would try the Macie scan on a an excel file with three columns. The first column had 5 first names, the second column had 5 last names, and the third column had 5 SSN numbers. Nothing else was in the excel file. I ran the Macie scan again and it still failed to find any sensitive data. I tried using the all managed identifiers scan and just the individual SSN scan and neither of them returned any findings. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong and why Macie cant find simple SSN numbers? I am happy to provide more context as well as share the files if it will be helpful (all the SSNs are fake numbers for testing).
Hello, I tried running Macie job on a bucket with just a few small files. The job is running for more than 10 hours and it does not look like it is going to end. There are no errors anywhere (including in cloudtrail). Any idea of what could be the issue?
I tried setting the AWS Macie to analyze sensitive data. but not work. I create the following "custom data identifiers" ``` Name: Test01 Regular expression: (?i)batman\.txt.* Keywords: None Ignore words: None Maximum match distance: 50 Occurrences threshold: 1 Severity Level: Medium ``` [https://capsula-01.s3.amazonaws.com/AWS_MACIE01.png]() Create the job.

I connect to the server EC2 via session manager and run the command "scp batman.txt server:~" for example. Is it possible to get this? The bucket s3 [https://capsula-01.s3.amazonaws.com/AWS_MACIE03.png]() But not work. Let me know if i'm doing something wrong.

Hi All, Are there best practices and recommended tools for moving a copy of production data (in RDS/Dynamo/S3) to dev, with the ability to detect and anonymize personally identifiable information (PII) along the way?
