Carbon Black App Control provides a mechanism for locally approving all unapproved files on a selected computer.

You might do this if you have added a large number of known-good files to a computer after initialization, at which point they are in the unapproved state (if not explicitly banned or globally approved).


  1. On the console menu, click Assets > Computers.
  2. Click the name of the computer whose unapproved files you want to convert.
  3. In the Advanced menu on the lower right of the page, click Change Local State, select Unapproved to Locally Approved in the Change Local States menu, and then click the Go button. All files whose local state on the computer was Unapproved are now Locally Approved.
