Cloud DLP is available in the following regions and multi-regions. For more information about regions and zones, see Geography and regions.
To learn how to specify a region or multi-region for Cloud DLP to process your data in, see Specifying processing locations.
Note the following limitations of location-specific processing using Cloud DLP:
- Image inspection and
redaction, as well as image inspection
within PDF and Microsoft Word (DOCX) files, are only supported in the
multi-regions and the
globalregion. If you attempt to inspect images in a region that doesn't support it, Cloud DLP will fall back to scanning images as binary files. As a workaround, you can configure your scan job to skip these files by selecting the appropriate file types when setting up the job. (This limitation applies to images within these file types only; location-specific processing of PDF and DOCX files is supported.)
- The following infoType detectors are not currently available in all regions,
but are available globally:
- Storage inspection is supported in all regions that support region-specific Google Cloud storage repositories. Not all storage types are available on a region-specific basis. If a storage repository type such as BigQuery is not available for use in a particular region, you can't inspect it using Cloud DLP.
