DAM custom rule exception


I'm using DAM in my organization. I want to configure an exception, but it's not working. I hope I'll find the answer here.

the exceprion that I'm trying to configure it's a comment inside the SQL statement;
" -- exec master..xp_cmdshell " this is the comment inside a long SQL statement. When the "exec" is written inside a comment I don't want to see alert about it. But I see.

The exception is: (statement LIKE '%--exec master..xp_cmdshell%' OR statement CONTAINS '--exec master..xp_cmdshell' OR statement CONTAINS $xp_cmdshell)

Please assist.

Re: DAM custom rule exception

DAM events are the primary method of communicating abnormal or suspicious activity to the
administrator. DAM events are displayed to the administrator in the DAM Events Log (or the ePO Threat
Event Log) which consists of the information needed by the administrator to perform review and take
any further action if necessary. 

Re: DAM custom rule exception

Statement contains 'grant dba' Alert medium

Statement contains 'grant sysdba' Alert medium

Statement contains 'noaudit' and osuser <> 'mycompany\johnd' Alert high

Action: Alert-high

In this example, the user receives alerts when various DDL commands are executed when someoneother than the database administrator attempts to stop auditing.
