Customers can submit/upload their own threat indicators and share them with other organizations or groups that they have the rights to do so. Submitted data is available via Dossier and Indicator searches on the portal and through the Data API. Data Governance Policies allow organizations to control how their submitted data is shared with other organizations or groups on the platform. Infoblox can enable accessing and data sharing between organizations upon request. Policies can be used for multiple data submissions and are only visible within your organization.

Data profiles are used to identify data in the platform from one or many data submissions. A data profile must be specified when data is submitted. Data profiles are associated with governance policies, which control who can access the data. When a data profile is created it must be associated with a governance policy.

Users can submit threat indicators on the portal or via Data API. In order to submit data, the following is required:

1. A governance policy: Defines how data is shared.
2. A data profile: Defines if standard TTL should be used and a governance policy.

Users can submit data using the following formats: JSON, CSV, XML, TSV (tab separated values). For all data formats, the submitted data must identify the data/record type in addition to the list of data records. For CSV and TSV the record type must be provided as one of the columns. For JSON and XML the record type is defined in a separate top-level field. The record type field can be one of the following values: host, ip, or url. It is not possible to upload data using different profiles or different record types in the same file. Threat data consists of file-level fields and record-level fields. The following table contains descriptions of all available fields:
