Match XML policy exports with GUI setting names

Jump to solution
Hi, I am performing ePO policy cleanup as part of Health Report recommendations. I have exported all ENS policies manually as there is no bulk export functionality in ePO and cripted XML parser to agregate all the policy settings in one CSV. Now I am trying to relate XML exported settings with GUI settings. Some of them are self-explanatory but some of them I just can't find. I didn't find any KB or article from McAfee. Does anybody know how can I relate exported XML settings with GUI? E.g. What setting in XML file represents Endpoint Security Threat Prevention -> On-Access Scan -> Low-Risk Processes > Settings -> File types to scan Thank you!

As mentioned, the setting you are looking for would be here:

LowRisk-Detection szProgExts

 

However it won't give you a 1 or 0 value because the output is a list of file types.

Hi @User29439975 

We don't have this documented anywhere I'm afraid. Your best option would be to open the xml in something easily searchable i.e. Notepad++ and look for something specific within that setting i.e. if you are looking for "Low-Risk Processes" then search for one of your defined low risk processes and you'll find the right section.

For Endpoint Security Threat Prevention -> On-Access Scan -> Low-Risk Processes > Settings, you'll want to look at: 

<section name="lowrisk-detection">
<setting name="szProgExts">

Hi chealey ,

Thank you for quick reply.

Yes, that was my approached but I still was not able to identofy those.

Some of the settings are self explanatory and can be identified easily like:

bScanArchivesfor "Compressed archieve files"
bScanBackupReadsfor "Opened for backup"
bScanMimefor "Compressed MIME-encoded files"

 

But I can't relate anything with "File types to scan".

Is there anything you identiy?
