To edit task settings using the command line:

  1. Specify the required setting value:

    kesl-control --set-settings <task ID>|<task name> <setting=value> [<setting=value>]

    The application changes the specified setting.

    If you change the allowlist, or prohibit launch of all applications or applications that affect the operation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security in the Application Control task settings, run the --set-settings command with the --accept flag.

  2. Make sure the setting value is changed in the task configuration file:

    kesl-control --get-settings <task ID>|<task name>

If you add a new scan scope or exclusion scope not specifying all settings, a scope with default settings is added to the configuration file.


To specify a new scan scope, execute the following command:

kesl-control --set-settings 100 ScanScope.item_0001.UseScanArea=Yes ScanScope.item_0001.Path=/home

A new section describing the scan scope is added to the task configuration file with ID=100:
