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.

  • Hi Colin,

     

    In TRIM, We usually update the notes and upload the destruction certificate while deleting records for business justification incase if someone questioning later. Is that any option or tracking mechanism possible in Controlpoint when we dispose the redundant or obsolete etc? I am going through different available reports and could not find much. Usually, redundant once confirmed, we assign the policy and it will dispose as per the scheduled job run. Pls advice.
