Files and Folders

With security restrictions on Files and Folders, you can prevent specific file types and folders (such as *.vbs, *.avi, or \\server\share\folder\*) from being used in the user workspace.

You can configure Files and Folders on a global level at Security > Data > Files and Folders, and on application level at Composition > Applications, on the application's Security > Authorized Files tab.

Export log to CSV file

To export the information found under the Log tab as a CSV file, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Workspace Control Console and navigate to Security > Data > Files and Folders > Log tab.

  2. Right-click on any entry and then select Export to file from the context-menu.

  3. Select a location where to save the CSV file, enter an appropriate name for the file and then select Save.

Export log using the command line

Ivanti recommends to test first by exporting just one or two days of data.

Security logs can also be exported using the pwrtech command line:

pwrtech.exe /exportlog /type=files /output=<output filepath> [/outputtype=csv] [/start=<start date>] [/end=<end date>]

/outputtype, /start and /end are optional parameters. If /outputtype is not specified, then the security logs are exported as XML files instead of CSV files.

Replace the following with the appropriate values:

  • <output filepath> — Enter the full filepath where to save the CSV or XML file.
    For example: C:\export\files_folders.csv.

  • <start date> — Enter the start date to export log entries starting with the specified date.
    The format for date is YYYYMMDD. For example: 20161130.

  • <end date> — Enter the end date to export log entries up to the specified date.
    The format for date is YYYYMMDD. For example: 20180523.

For example:
pwrtech.exe /exportlog /type=files /output=C:\export\files_folders.csv /outputtype=csv /start=20161130 /end=20180523
