Workstyles Filters in Privilege Management

The Filters tab of a Workstyle showing one Account Filter applied.

To view or edit the general properties of a Workstyle, select macOS > Workstyles > Workstyle Name > Filters from the policy tree.

The Filters tab of a Workstyle can be used to further refine when a Workstyle is actually applied.

By default, a Workstyle applies to all users and/or computers who receive it. However, you can add one or more filters to restrict the application of the Workstyle:

  • Account Filter: This filter restricts the Workstyle to specific users or groups of users.
  • Computer Filter: This filter restricts the Workstyle to specifc computers by computer name or IP address.

If you want the Workstyle to apply only if all filters match, select the option ALL filters must match from above the Filters table. If you want the Workstyle to apply when any filter matches, select the option ANY filter can match from above the Filters table.

Filters can also be configured to apply if there are no matches. This is referred to as an exclude filter. To set an exclude filter, check the filter box and click Actions > Set NOT. To clear the exclude filter, select it and click Actions > Clear NOT.

After you change the policy, click Submit and then Save to save the policy. In ePO 5.10 and later, if you have McAfee Approvals workflow enabled, this workflow can be modified to change the Save button to Submit for Review based on user permissions.
