    Excludes images from the audit events. Specify the image format.

    URLs Matching Regular Expression

    Excludes URLs matching the configured regular expression.

    It filters the specified URL paths from the ones audited as part of the URL Accessed audit event. These filtered out URL paths are not displayed in the audit server. This is helpful where auditing every URL is not required and might increase the load of the audit server.The regular expression is standard Perl regular expressions. For more information, see Regular Expressions.Each URL (path?querystring) is matched against this expression. If the match is successful, the URL is not audited for URL access.

    For example:

    • To exclude health check messages auditing: /nesp/app/heartbeat
    • To exclude the auditing of URL under the path /images/: /images/*
