User-Defined Rules

A user-defined rule is a rule that you—or additional administrators with access to the ESM Console—create to manage the Traps security policy and agent settings, or to perform specific actions on the endpoint. A user-defined rule can override or inherit the settings from the preceding rule in the rule hierarchy.
  • Export user-defined rules.
    1. Select the policy management page for the set of rules you are exporting. For example, PoliciesExploitProtection Modules.
    2. Select the check box next to the rule(s) you want to export or use the check box at the top of the column to select all rules.
    3. From the action menu manage-hidden-menu-icon.png at the top of the table, select Export Selected. The ESM Console saves the selected rules to an XML file.

  • Import user-defined rules.

    2. Select Import Rules from the action menu manage-hidden-menu-icon.png at the top of the table.
