Could anyone tell me what is the poll interval in the Unmanaged policy in WSA EP? I couldn't find any information on that.

The default setting is 24 hours. You can go into your console and change the polling interval to whatever fits your needs best.
Click Endpoint Protection>'Policies'>double-click on the policy>click 'Polling Interval'>it will go into a draft mode and you will need push the changes to 'Live'

Hi MikeR. Yes that part is clear but I just wanted to know whether the poll intervall for Unmanaged policy is the same as for Recommended Defaults (Unmanaged policy can't be edited). This is actually not a true policy because it sort of "disconnects" the endpoint from a console. However, endpoint in Unmanaged policy can still receive agent commands and obviously must report back to a console. So if I understand you correctly when I have my endpoint in Unamanaged policy and then I decide to move it to a different policy I must wait 24h befere the change will take effect? (unless of course I'm lucky enough to have this endpoint near me and be able to clik "Referesh Configuration")

I can confirm that the polling interval for the unmanaged policy is 24 hours. Or just run a scan from that endpoint manually, and it will check in.

Additionally, you could make a copy of the 'Unmanaged Policy' and you would then be able to change the poll interval on the copy.

As far as I know the "Unmaneged" policy is the only one you cannot actually copy/edit. But I got my answer so thanks a lot:)
