Turning on Document Scanning

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Once your choice of anti-virus scanner is correctly configured for integration with FlexNet Manager Suite, you need to set values in the registry of your web application server to change the default "off" to "on".

The registry keys identified below may have been created during installation/upgrade of FlexNet Manager Suite, if that process was run by scripts using an appropriately modified answer file. If the process was run interactively, these registry keys may not yet exist. Document scanning is turned off when either the registry key does not exist, or it exists and is set to false. Scanning is only turned on when the appropriate registry key exists, and its value is true.

To configure automatic scanning for uploaded documents:

  1. On your web application server, use your preferred registry editor to check (or complete) the setting for the following key/value pair.
    This setting tells FlexNet Manager Suite where to find the PowerShell integration script. If you are using the recommended ClamAV tool, you should have just set this value in Configuring the Recommended AV. If you are configuring your preferred anti-virus tool, ensure that this value points to your customized PowerShell integration script.
    • 64-bit registry key: HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Flexera Software\FlexNet Manager Platform\Security\CurrentVersion\FileUploadScannerPath
    • Value type: string
    • Example value: C:\ClamAV\Filescanner_ClamAV.ps1 (the absolute path and file name for the PowerShell integration script).
  2. Create or update the following key/value pair to turn on document scanning:
    • 64-bit registry key: HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Flexera Software\FlexNet Manager Platform\Security\CurrentVersion\EnableFileUploadScan
    • Value type: string, either true or false
    • Example value: true (required to turn on scanning of uploaded documents).
  3. To validate operations:
    1. Log into the web interface of FlexNet Manager Suite as an operator.
    2. Navigate to the property sheet of an object such as a purchase record, and choose the Documents tab.
    3. Click Attach, and for Method of attachment choose Document upload.
    4. Click Browse, select any file, and (watching closely, because it might be quick) click Upload.
      Tip: If you have debug logs enabled, a message Scanning file filename for malicious content is logged for the upload.
This completes registry configuration for document scanning.
