Just wanted to give an update on this. I think this should be something that is added to the instructions.
The fix was after installing the plugin through Automate, you have to go assign the Sophos Plugin…
Upon trying to add the Sophos plugin DLL to Automate, I encountered an error. When I reached out to Automate support, they refused to help because the plugin is "unsupported" and "not certified". Who can I reach out to for plugin installation support?
Are you getting the following error?
Issue: There was an error uploading the new plugin: Could not load file or assemblyfile:///C:\Users\*******\AppData\Local\Temp\tmp48DB6.tmp' or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported.(Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)
Solution: As this plugin is not available from the solution center, but downloaded from the Sophos Central Community, you may need to unblock the .DLL file by right clicking and navigating to file properties, as shown in the below screenshot
That was exactly the issue. Thanks!
This did not work for us, possibly because we have our Automate hosted with the newer CW Cloud offering. After beating on support for a while and with Steve Weber's assurances, Automate Support finally agreed to load the .DLL from their end and it's working like a top now.

We're also getting the same error. We've unblocked, and we're on premise. I'm trying support now but not getting anywhere unfortunately. They had me move it to the plugins folder, and try to add it again, but I'm getting the same error.
I managed to pry the following from them, but it won't work for us. They're bouncing us back to Sophos.
Candace, are you Cloud Hosted with CW for your Automate instance? We are and they kept pushing us back to Sophos too, but we finally found an Automate Tech that would truly look into the issue and he loaded the .DLL for us (and it's working smoothly). If this fits your scenario and you'd like to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll be happy to provide what info I can from our encounter with support. It may give you the leverage you need.
EDIT: I just noticed your earlier post that you were on-prem, so our experience with Automate Support may not apply. I guess I can maybe see why they won't assist with loading a foreign .DLL in that situation. It's frustrating though, everyone involved is owned by the same parent company... can't we all just get along! LOL.
Exactly! It's super frustrating being bounced back and forth. I understand it's not signed so they want to wash their hands of it, but it's not like it's some unknown company. I even made them go check what they did in their notes for you, which is how I got the above steps. Sadly, it's still a no-go. Thanks for responding though!
That's frustrating. Keep on fighting...it's a great Plug-in and its worth it!!!!
What error are you getting? This works with on-premise Automate without a problem. You just have to first unblock the DLL file by right-clicking it and clicking properties. Unblock the DLL and then load it again. PM, me if you need assistance.
