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.

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

  • Hi,

    There was an issue in CP 5.7 where it was not possible to run db_bcp_initial_export_import.sql after ControlPointExport was deleted and recreated.

    This was resolved in CP 5.8.

    So if you are using CP 5.8 or above then it should be possible to
    Delete ControlPointExport DB and run exportBI_database_creation.sql to create ControlPointExport DB again.
    Edit db_bcp_initial_export_import.sql with datapath, username, password values etc
    Then run db_bcp_initial_export_import.sql
    etc

    Regards,
    Colin
