I have a small question from the perspective of the Web UI. Where can I set exclusion of crawling/scanning of some file types like
jpg|css| and so on?

Also in some cases there are urls that are like the following


Which will not be discarded as it has a parameter. What would be the best way from the Web UI to exclude certain type of files and URL like the one above?

Thanks for your help,

    The "exclude file extensions" Scope option can now be found in the WebUI in the nightlies.
    Give that a try and let me know how it works.

    Alternatively, you can set a more generic pattern (like the one you mentioned) via the "exclude path patterns" option.

    Hello Thanks a lot for your quick answer,

    I downloaded the nigtlies version and I see it implemented.
    Would you recommend the usage as the above in screenshot?
    Thanks again for the help provided.
