Environment Manager powered by AppSense

Message Libraries

In this section:

Blocked Text Library

Blocked text allows you to configure a list of words or expressions which will be used to delete or replace text entered into Edit and Combo controls. The Blocked Text Library controls the behavior for any words which are added to it.

The message libraries are used and can be configured when using the General Wizard to create a Combo Box or Edit Control type lockdown, with the edit control filtered lockdown option.

User Messages

Messages can be configured so that they display when a user attempts to select an option or other application element, which has been locked down. User-defined messages can be set to display for Edit, Combo Box and certain MSAA controls.

Apply a message to a lockdown by selecting one from the Message drop-down in the appropriate Edit Control dialog box.

The Blocked Message Library includes a default Logoff Message. The message displays when the logoff process is delayed due to the Environment Manager Agent completing actions.

The message can be customized by overwriting the text in the Message box. The Title must not be altered from Logoff Message.

To disable the Logoff message, delete the Message text and the message box will not be displayed.

Configure the Blocked Text Library

  1. Select the Policy Configuration navigation button.
  2. In the Tools & Wizards ribbon Lockdown group, select Blocked Text Library.

    The Blocked Text Library can also be configured when creating Edit and Combo Box controls by following this procedure.

    The Text List sets the behavior for the Text Items within.

  3. Select Add > Add Blocked Text List
  4. Enter a Description for the Text List.
  5. Select a behavior:
    • Use regular expressions - Use wildcards to define the blocked text. See Wildcards and Regular Expressions . Some programs do not support the ^ when used at the start of regular expressions.
    • Remove all text if blocked - Removes or replaces all text in the field when blocked text is entered.
    • Remove blocked text - Removes or replaces only the blocked text item from the field. Unblocked text is unaffected.
  6. In the Replace With field, enter the text you want to replace the blocked text with. If no alternative text is specified, the blocked text will be deleted.
  7. Select the Block Drive Letter checkbox if required. This blocks any drive names (e.g. C:) which have been disallowed by group policy from being entered in the selected edit control or combo box.

    Once the Text List has been defined, the Blocked Text Items (the words or phrases you want to prohibit) must be added.

  8. Click Add > Add Blocked Text Item.
  9. Enter a word or phrase to be blocked.
  10. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to add more text items.
  11. Click OK to close the library.

The library is then used when enforcing Combo Box or Edit Control lockdowns to delete or replace the word or words listed.

Configure User Messages

  1. Select the Policy Configuration navigation button.
  2. In the Tools & Wizards ribbon Lockdown group, select User Messages.

    The Blocked Text Library can also be configured when creating Edit and Combo Box controls by following this procedure.

  3. Click Add to create a new message with the following elements:
    • Title - A name for the message, displayed in the library and when configuring messages for controls.
    • Caption - The text used in the header of the message.
    • Message - The body of the message.
  4. Click OK to add the message. It can now be used when configuring Lockdown actions.
