Cisco ASA - Enable Cisco Secure Desktop or Cache Cleaner Per Profile, Not Globally

I'm running a Cisco ASA 5520 8.2(1) for secure VPN access.  We use both AnyConnect and WebVPN.  I am trying to enable either Cisco Secure Desktop or Cache Cleaner for a certain AnyConnect profile, while not applying it to the other profiles.  Is this possible?  Seems to me like it's just a checkbox on or off, and I can't find anything in the group policies to enable or disable for a given policy.  I'm using the ASDM for this (easier for me on things like this than CLI) so if this is possible please describe how to get to it in the ASDM.

Thanks

Short answer, yes you can. It's a relatively new command called without-csd

Sorry, forgot about the ASDM part. I am not a big user of ASDM, but I can't find the ASDM equivalent to the the without-csd command.

Thanks for the response kellemann.  The only problem I see with this is that it seems to apply specifically to webVPN and then specifically to certain URLs.  I tried using the 'without-csd' command on one of my AnyConnect tunnel-groups and it didn't stop it from using CSD.  Unfortunately, according to the link you sent, 'the group-url command is required for the without-csd command to have an effect.'

Is there another way I should be using this?  I'm not averse to using CLI to do this, just need to know if what I need can be accomplished with this command, and if I'm using it correctly.

Sorry, that's the only way to create differentiate CSD. See this FAQ:
