Device Control - Continue to Block, but not create a Violation

L2 Linker

With regard to leveraging Device Control Profile and Policies, with regard to Disable USB Hard Drive.  Am I missing what is the process to continue to BLOCK a USB Hard Drive, but to not generate a Violation entry for it.

Use Case:
We are aware of this activity for a specific Device/Vendor (Sony camera, but shows up as Hard Drive as it has a drive associated with it)  We want to continue to block this, but we no longer want to see it show up in the Device Control Violations table.


Is this possible?
Thanks in advance for any recommendations or resource / reference link I may have missed to accomplish this.
