How Global File State is determined depends on the version of the agent that is used.

For agents at v7.0.1 Patch 3 and later, including all v7.2 and 8.0 agents, Global File State is effectively a combination of Certificate Global State and File State – Publisher State is already considered in the calculation of Certificate Global State.

For agents prior to v7.0.1 Patch 3, Global File State remains a combination of Publisher State and File State. Certificate Global State is not involved in Global File State determination.

See File, Publisher, and Application Information for more information on how Global File State is determined.
