Add a New Action Rule
For each action rule, you can specify organizational objects, conditions, and actions to take on each endpoint. Action rules apply to Traps agents on endpoints running the operating system you select.
- Create a new action rule.Select SettingsAgentActions.
- Select the type of operating system (Windows or macOS) and then Add a new rule.
- Select the type of task you want to perform.
- (Optional) Add Conditions to
the rule. By default, a new rule does not contain any conditions.To specify a condition, select the Conditions tab, select the condition in the Conditions list, and then Add it to the Selected Conditions list. Repeat this step to add more conditions, as needed. To add a condition to the Conditions list, see Define Activation Conditions for a Rule.
- (Optional) Define the Target
Objects to which to apply the action rule. By default, a
new rule applies to all objects in your organization.To define a subset of target objects, select the Objects tab, and then enter one or more Users, Computers, Groups, Organizational Unit, or Existing Endpoints in the Include or Exclude areas. The Endpoint Security Manager queries Active Directory to verify the users, computers, groups, or organizational units or identifies existing endpoints from previous communication messages.
- (Optional) Review the rule name and description.
The ESM Console automatically generates the rule name and description
based on the rule details but permits you to change these fields,
if needed.To override the autogenerated name, select the Name tab, clear the Activate automatic description option, and then enter a rule name and description of your choice.
- Save the action rule.Do either of the following:
After saving or applying a rule, you can return to the Actions page at any time to Delete or Deactivate the rule.
- Save the rule without activating it. This option is only available for inactive, cloned, or new rules. When you are ready to activate the rule, select the rule from the SettingsAgentActions page and then click Activate.
- Apply the rule to activate it immediately.
