Configure the block list

Each Client Proxy policy is associated with a list of blocked processes.

The block list is designed to reduce the amount of traffic that is redirected to the proxy server for filtering. Occasionally, the block list can restrict access to Internet resources, when the restriction is not intended.

Configure the list of endpoint processes that are blocked from accessing the network.

A process list is a list of processes that run on the endpoints. Windows process names must end with .exe. macOS process names don't require a file name extension.
