Hi,

I wonder how can I exclude an app and a folder in macOS, running KES 11 connected to KSC 10?

 

For the app is easy because the path is always the same: /Applications/…

 

For the user data, that is located in /Users/username/Library, I need to mask the username in macOS.

 

Many thanks,

Oliver

Hi,

Could you please clarify are you trying to add an exclusion tpo trusted zone or to Scan task?

Please notice, that you can use “~” as a mask.

Thank you!

Hi, I’m trying to add an exclusion to the Trusted Zone, on macOS Mojave.

 

I want KES to ignore one App and his data folder. The App and Data folder names have spaces, like this:

 

App: “/Applications/My App.app/”

Data: “/Users/f_lastname/Library/Application Support/My App/”

 

Thanks

Oliver

Could you please clarify were there any errors or incorrect behavior?

Thank you!

Hi Nikolay,

for me is difficult to check if the KES is scanning an App, that's why I wanted to confirm the correct syntax. But will try using the Trusted apps to see if they work fine. Will report back

Oliver
