Migrate exclusions from a Policy

In ESMC 7.1 and later, you cannot create detection exclusions via a Policy anymore. In case your policies previously contained exclusions, follow the steps below to migrate exclusions from Policies to the Exclusions list in ESMC 7.2:

1.Navigate to Policies and click the policy that contains exclusions and select Show Details.

2.Click Settings > Detection Engine.

3.Click View next to Detection exclusions.


4.Click the Export button and then click the button next to Download exported data and save the export.txt file. Click OK.


5.In the ESMC Web Console, navigate to More > Exclusions.

6.Click the Import button to import detection exclusions from a file. Click Choose file to upload and navigate to the export.txt file or drag and drop the file.


7.Click the Import button to import the detection exclusions. Imported detection exclusions will appear in the exclusions list.




The original exclusion assignments are not preserved. Imported detection exclusions are by default assigned to computers in your home group. To change the exclusion assignment, click the exclusion and select edit_defaultChange assignment.

You can assign detection exclusions only to computers with a compatible ESET security product installed. Detection exclusions will not be applied to incompatible ESET security products and will be ignored on them.
