Application Group Inclusions and Exclusions

Inclusions and exclusions for registry, folder and file paths can be added that apply to all applications within an Application Group.

It is recommended that inclusions and exclusions are added at Application Group level.

Add Application Group Inclusions using Application Data Collection

Application Data Collection passively collects data from managed endpoints as users run applications.

Registry key and folder paths that are written to and read from are recorded for each application. On application close, the data is stored in the Environment Manager Personalization database.

  1. In the User Personalization navigation tree, select Personalization Settings > Application Personalization > Application Group.
  2. Select an application group.
  3. From the Personalization ribbon, click Add Application > Select Application.

    The dialog lists all registry keys and folder paths which have been collected by Application Data Collection for the selected application. Existing inclusions are selected.
