Viewing compliance violations

A compliance violation indicates that the configuration is no longer in compliance with one or more assigned rules. This feature allows you to audit established configuration standards.

You can view the compliance violations from the Dashboard or by generating the Compliance Summary report.

From the Dashboard, you can identify who made the changes, view violations in detail, and optionally resolve the violations for individual devices. 

The Dashboard offers the following menu options:

  • Views: Display devices matching a favorite device view. When groups or combo groups are displayed, devices matching the selected view are included in the devices with compliance violations counts.
  • Refresh: Update the Dashboard to show current violations.
  • Help: Display Help for the Dashboard page.

Violations can be displayed by devices, groups, or combo groups. When the Dashboard is in group view, a count of the total number of devices within the group (and selected View) with violations is shown.

The Compliance Summary Report displays the compliance status for one or more devices for selected or assigned rules sets.

For recommendations on resolving violations see Fixing compliance violations.
