Exclude a file from scan

1 Likes

ISSUE:

ControlPoint allows to exclude files when scanning sources. The graphical interface gives the possibility to exclude file extensions. What if I want to exclude a specific file.

HOW TO STEPS:

The connector configuration file gives you more granularity in what you can exclude.

Open the connector configuration file (.cfg).

Go to the task section of the repository: e.g. [TaskMyRepository]

Add the PathCantHaveRegex parameter. In the following example, we exclude "thumb.db" files AND all pdf files.

PathCantHaveRegex0=.*thumb\.db
PathCantHaveRegex1=.*\.(pdf)

Note that you can have multiple parameters with the number at the end.

Also note that when you use these manual adds in the configuration file, you should not use anymore the field in the graphical interface as this will conflict.

See also the file system connector documentation: https://www.microfocus.com/documentation/idol/IDOL_12_3/FileSystemConnector_12.3_Documentation/Help/index.html#Configuration/TaskName/PathCantHaveRegex.htm

  • Thanks Colin, Agree on the workaround and also change in place in future release. I realized by comparing these 2 SP's and commented out the section 4 and it will never work for me untill I cleared duplicate data from the ControlPointMetaStore.ControlPointmetadata.AuditDocumentEvent table or update the RefreshDatbase SP \ Table. Since, I dont require this Audit Info in my export Audit Table, I commented out and reran and all looks good . I can use other way to run the query from AuditDocumentEvent if need as well.

    Thanks so much for sharing the events audit info regarding the code and description and really helpful.
