How do I remove Managed AV "host" exclusions



  • Thomas Bray

    Question - "Exclusions set on a host cannot be cleared by the Huntress agent..." - is this a decided-upon limitation/policy of the Huntress agent, or a limitation by Microsoft regarding the management of Defender exclusions created by different users on the system?

  • Alan Bishop

    Thanks for the great question Thomas! It was a policy that Huntress decided upon so that we don't clear any exclusions the partner had set previously. 

  • Phil Ellis

    Huntress should add an option to override existing exclusions, it's hardly managed or enforced if you allow existing exceptions to remain and they can only be remediated by manually connecting to the device and removing them in the GUI.
