- Click ‘Add’ in the top left corner of the window.

- In the 'Policy Name' field, enter a name for the policy you are about to create.

- Ensure the 'Whitelist Policy' is selected, and click on 'OK'.

- The policy name you entered will then appear in the list on the left-hand side of this window.

- There are a number of options that you can configure in this window:

 

[1] What would you like to whitelist?

Select the application type that you wish to whitelist from the predefined list of options.

 

[2] Specify what you would like to whitelist?

Specify the word/phrase that you wish to whitelist. In this example 'A Website Address/URL' is being whitelisted, and the specific website will be anything containing the word 'Impero'. You can use asterisks (*) to act as a wildcard.

 

[3] Import

You can create a list of keywords in advance to add to policy and import them from a text file.

 

[4] Options

When this whitelist item is activated, an entry will be put into the LogViewer.

 

Take Screenshot on Activation

A screenshot will be taken of the user screen when the whitelist item is activated.

 

Alert Console Users of Activation

An alert will display on the screen of console users to notify them when a whitelist item has been activated.

 

- Once you have configured your policy, click on 'Add'.

- Your policy item will then be added to your newly created 'White List' policy.

- By default, your new policy is set to 'Disabled'.
