You can use wildcard characters in the Process fields.

Asterisk (*) indicates zero or more characters and question mark (?) indicates one character. You can use wildcards to specify partial paths or multiple paths for directories that appear in different locations on different computers (although macros might be a more effective way to accomplish this – see Using Macros).

Note: Do not include wildcards inside macros.

The number of wildcards in a process specification is not restricted. For example, you can define a path as:


Important: When you use wildcards, be careful not to create a rule that is so broad that it interferes with activity that is required for legitimate use by an application or the operating system. Don not use the asterisk wildcard by itself in the Target Process field and with rules blocking multiple types of access. Use it only if it does not interfere with necessary operations on the agent computer.
