DLP - Content Tracking - path and wildcard

Hi community.


Is there a way to use wildcard in a Content tracking "McAfee DLP Endpoint ignores access to file"?

We need to ignore DLP when thunderbird.exe run for first time and need to ignore msf files in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\onqgmfkx.default\ImapMail\

onqgmfkx.default is a random name for thunderbird profile.


Only works with the full path name... and need a wildcard for the more users.

Re: DLP - Content Tracking - path and wildcard


You can use environment variables in the folder name. If no folder name is provided, the process is whitelisted and is not monitored by application file access rules.

For example, %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\*


Have you tried the above configuration?
