I'm looking for clarification regarding the syntax used within the Harmony Endpoint Anti-Malware Blade.
Specifically I'm asking in regards to creating directory and file exceptions under the "Periodic Scan" options as well as the "Scan All Files on Access" options.
1) Am I correct to assume that different syntax rules apply to these distinct sections of the same Anti-Malware Blade?
While the Endpoint Security R80.30 Administration guide specifies the use of environmental variables as acceptable for the "Scan All Files on Access" set of options, can you confirm that environmental variables can't be used within the "Periodic Scan" list of exclusions?
2) Within the list of exclusions for "Periodic Scan" options, how are Wildcards handled?
Exclusions of a specific filetype are mentioned within the documentation, however the only example given does not contain a full path to a directory; rather the implication seems to be that the exclusion is entirely global.
"*.txt" would exclude all ".txt" files from scanning; filesystem wide?
Can I specify a filepath preceeding the file-type exclusion, for example "C:\Program Files\*.txt"? Would this be a valid exclusion?
And to expand on the previous example, how flexible is the utilization of wildcards, can I use them to exclude numbered files? For example assume the directory "C:\Documents\" contains several .doc files with the same name, but including sequential numbering (document1.doc, document2.doc, document3.doc), would this exclusion entry work? "C:\Documents\document*.doc"
Likewise, can I use the wildcard symbol to exclude files with the same filename but different extension, taking files "document.doc, document.pdf" and excluding both through "C:\Documents\document.*"
