Whitelist false positive in Endpoint ESA Rules
We have a poorly coding internal application that keeps triggering the Endpoint ESA rule 'unsigned outbound from temp directory'
What would be the best way to whitelist this so it doesn't keep showing up in alerts in the respond module?

Your easiest and best option will be to adjust the companion App Rule that is the source of that ESA rule:
..and add the additional syntax to filter out your internal application.
You can figure out this additional syntax by looking at the endpoint events triggering that app rule by querying for it in NetWitness:
(device.type = 'nwendpoint') AND (boc = 'outbound from unsigned temporary directory')
...and picking out the meta keys and values that will identify that specific application (checksum.src is probably a good one).
You would then add that as a != filter in the app rule:
The more specific and precise you can be to positively identify that application, the better.
