Configuration Options

uberAgent can be configured by means of configuration files (all platforms) or via Group Policy (Windows).

Default Configuration

uberAgent’s setup installs a default set of configuration files along with the agent binaries. This default configuration is maintained in the uberAgent Configuration GitHub repository. It is advisable to regularly check the GitHub repository for relevant configuration updates, specifically for uberAgent ESA’s threat detections and security inventory checks.

Data Volume Optimized Configuration

A configuration optimized for data volume is available as an alternative to the default configuration.


uberAgent looks for its configuration in the following locations.


  1. Group Policy
  2. ProgramData: %ProgramData%\vast limits\uberAgent\Configuration\uberAgent.conf
  3. Installation directory: typically C:\Program Files\vast limits\uberAgent\uberAgent.conf

The first configuration found is used exclusively. In other words: Group Policy overrides %ProgramData%, which overrides the installation directory.


  1. /Library/Application Support/uberAgent/
