Exclude Data from Group Policy Monitoring Scope

You can fine-tune Netwrix Auditor by specifying data that you want to exclude from the Group Policy monitoring scope. To do it, edit the omitobjlist_gp.txt, omitproplist_gp.txt and omituserlist_gp.txt files.

To exclude data from the Group Policy monitoring scope

  1. Navigate to the %Netwrix Auditor installation folder%\Active Directory Auditing folder.
  2. Edit omitobjlist_gp.txt, omitproplist_gp.txt and omituserlist_gp.txt files, based on the following guidelines:

    • Each entry must be a separate line.
    • A wildcard (*) is supported and can be used to replace any number of characters.
    • Lines that start with the # sign are treated as comments and are ignored.
