FlexNet Manager Suite 2020 R1 (On-Premises)

Command line | Registry

ExcludeEmbedFileContentDirectory identifies a subpath within the current search target (declared in EmbedFileContentDirectory) that must be excluded from scanning for ISO tag files.

This preference may be set by downloaded policy to reflect the settings in the web interface for FlexNet Manager Suite at Discovery & Inventory > Settings.
Tip: A folder may still be scanned, but as part of the search for general file inventory, if it is included through IncludeDirectory and not also excluded by ExcludeDirectory. Even in this case, no ISO tag files are returned from a path identified in ExcludeEmbedFileContentDirectory.


Values / range

One (or more) folder(s) to be excluded from the search path scanned for ISO tag files to embed in the uploaded inventory (.ndi) file. Multiple paths should be separated by the semi-colon character.

Default value


Example values

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe"
This example excludes Adobe applications from checking for ISO tag files (perhaps to save scanning folders containing non-standard file extensions — see EmbedFileContentExtension).
