Exclude a file from scan

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.

  • Thanks Colin,  This is one of the task pending and completed now to export control point data and Refresh the ControlPointExport database. Based on quick check still the documents disposed not exists in the export database. But, will explore further to understand this database and how to capture the potential disk saving.
