Application Data Collection
Application Data Collection passively collects data from managed endpoints as users run applications. The collected data can be used to create new applications and add to registry and folder inclusions to existing Application Groups.
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.
The registry and folder paths from the Application Data Collection configuration are added as inclusions. The global registry, folder and file path inclusions are added as exclusions for the Application Group to ensure that unexpected data is not captured.
Note: Application Data Collection does not capture Microsoft Edge settings. To personalize Microsoft Edge, import the Application Group Templates.
Caution: Enabling Application Data Collection causes an increase in system
utilization on managed endpoints.
It is recommended that Application Data Collection is disabled when no longer required.
