Create a detection exception

To reduce false positives or duplicate events in your detection results, you can create exceptions for detection rules. When you create a detection exception, the specified processes will not be evaluated by the
Optics
detection engine. Use caution when you create detection exceptions, because they have the potential to reduce the overall security of devices.
