Description

These group policies are located in the Skip Items folder.

Set the criteria to identify folders that should not be synchronized in the background for users with mobile accounts. These group policies allow you to specify a string that identifies files and folders to skip during synchronization:

  • Use the Skip items that end with policy to skip items that end with the specified string. The string should not contain the slash (/) character.
  • Use theSkip items that start with policy to skip items that start with the specified string. The string should not contain the slash (/) character.
  • Use the Skip items whose full path matches policy to skip all items in the specified directory. For example, if you specify ~/Library, no items in ~/Library directory will be synchronized.
  • Use the Skip items whose name contains policy to skip items that contain the specified string. The string should not contain the slash (/) character.
  • Use the Skip items whose name is policy to skip items that exactly match the specified string. The string should not contain the slash (/) character.
  • Use the Skip items whose partial path matches policy to skip items with a partial path that matches the specified string.
  • Use the Skip items whose RegEx name is policy to skip items whose name exactly matches the specified RegEx string.
  • Use the Skip items whose RegEx path is policy to skip all items whose path matches the specified RegEx string.

Enable any of these group policies, then click Add and type a string, for example Users or /Users,~/Library, then click OK.

These policies require the Enable preference sync rules policy to be enabled.

After any of these policies are enabled, they take effect when users log out and log back in.
