Question How do I exclude certain user accounts from NetWrix File Server Change Reporter Change Summaries and Reports if I do not want to monitor them (for example, a service account used by a backup software)?
Answer To exclude user accounts from data collection and reporting, do the following:
  1. Navigate to NetWrix File Server Change Reporter installation folder.
  2. Open one of the following configuration files:
  • omituserlist_fs.txt file to exclude certain users from the email Change Summaries
  • omitstoreuserlist_fs.txt file to exclude certain users from SSRS-based Reports and email Change Summaries as well.
  1. Edit the selected file by specifying the accounts you want to exclude. Accounts must be entered one per line in the 'domain\username' format. Wildcards (* and ?) are supported.
  2. Save the changes and close the file.
