Description (partial)

This is an issue we found during regression of VDB 7 Mary 3 (235.4 dev build on

If you create an AC policy rule, then click the Applications tab and enter "Yahoo", it filters for all Yahoo! applications. One of these is "yahoo! file transfer". If you include those in a rule and apply it, you get the error "Policy has rules with missing detectors..."

This application detector was deprecated sometime around (or before) VDB 149, and it should not be returned in the UI as a possible application.

We've replicated this with various VDBs on and It's likely the problem has been around longer than that.

Cliff Judge investigated:

"The problem in a nutshell, is that appIds that are deleted are present in appIdInfo, where they should not be. This can prevent AC policy apply.

We haven't seen this with an "all risks" policy because the deleted appIds have no risk.

A weird aspect to this is that you don't see the deleted app show up in AC policy rules creation.

But if you try to create an AC rule with apps specified, and you use the search bar to create a filter of "yahoo" you won't be able to apply that policy."

In short, it appears to be a UI or AC Policy issue.

Per Costas:
"It shouldn't matter if the are in the appIDInfo table. In there, we have a field called "deleted" and if that's the case we should be using our queries to make sure that deleted != 0."

Search for the name of a deleted / deprecated app detector in an application name filter and apply it to an AC policy.
