Rule Check: Registry Key Value Setting (Windows)
The Registry Key Value Setting check for Windows verifies whether a specified Windows registry key has a specified value.
The check examines both the
data portions of all actual values of the specified registry key to verify that a value of the specified name exists and that its data portion is equal to the specified expected setting. The check fails if the
data portion of the value specified by
name does not match the expected setting. The check is indeterminate if (1) the value specified by
name does not exist in the key, or (2) the key itself does not exist.
The full path to the registry key to examine. The key path is case-insensitive. Neither wildcards nor recursion is supported. However, a path may include a Windows environment variable, using the format %envVariable%partialPath.
The name of the value to examine. Names are case-insensitive. Neither wildcards nor recursion is supported.
You can specify only one value name per check. Use multiple checks if you want to examine multiple values.
The setting that the value should have. Supply it in the expected format:
To supply multiple acceptable settings for the value, use a comma-separated list.
If the expected value setting itself contains a comma, you must escape that comma with a backslash ("
To specify that the expected value setting should be empty/nothing, leave the "Expected data" field blank.
