How to skip the SharePoint Central Administration URL validation on the Specify SharePoint Farm step of the Managed Object creation and consider a provided URL to be valid?


Netwrix Auditor verifies the Central Administration URL address on the Specify SharePoint Farm step of the Managed Object creation. To consider certain URLs or all URLs valid by default you can create a custom registry key. To do this,
  1. On the computer, where Netwrix Auditor is installed, navigate to Start –> Run and type "regedit".
  2. In the Registry Editor, navigate to Computer –> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE –> SOFTWARE –> (Wow6432Node) –> Netwrix –> Management Console.
  3. Create the SharePointCentralAdminRegex string registry key. 
  4. Enter the regular expression in the Value data field.
For example, to consider all URLs to be valid, enter ".*".
Currently the following regular expression is used for the URL validation: ".*var((s+)|())g_wsaSiteTemplateId((s+)|())=((s+)|())'CENTRALADMIN#d+'.*'".
