[client Security] Variable %userprofile% not recognized in firewall rules
I try to create a rule which allows the execution of an exe file according to few criteria.
The exe file is in a directory under %userprofile%\AppData.
When I create the rule, after the remote adress, in the "application path", If I put %userprofile% in the path, the exe file is not found.
If I put exactly the path of the file - ie c:\users\martin.luther\Appdata, it works (but it's not the solution because on each PC, it's under a different directory).
Is there a way to find a solution ?

I suggest to create a support request with FSDiag log and screenshots of the rules/issue.
Just to clarify - are you wanting the .exe file to be removed from scanning, or is our product blocking it ?
The format %USERPROFILE% is not supported format. Advise to use wildcard as following.
is there anything new on this case? I would like to use %USERPROFILE% to configure Defender firewall rule via FS PMS too. Is this variable supported for the Defender FW rule?
Jamesch, mentioned scanning exception syntax but I mean firewall application configuration to allow traffic through Defender FW.
