HIPS Exception --> ENS?

I am working through migrating from HIPS to Exploit Prevention. Hoping someone can provide some insight/clarity to the following scenario. 

HIPS Signature - Powershell Command Restriction (any of them) triggers a high number of false positives. 

  • 'Detailed Event Info'  is the field that contains the parameters I want to exclude.
  • When creating a non-expert rule, excluding the 'Detailed Event Info' parameters that I want to ignore is not possible. So, I have to trigger the event and then 'Create Exception' within the Threat Event, which does include the 'Detailed Event Info' field and associated parameters.

When I migrate HIPS rules to ENS, the 'Detailed Event Info' exception is dropped. 

Am I able to define the desired parameters of 'Detailed Event Info' in an Exploit Prevention Expert Rule? According to the Expert Rule Syntax doc, detailed_event_info value can only be CLSIDs... 

Any guidance is appreciated!
