Viewing imported SCAP objects

You can view summary level information about each of the imported SCAP objects in the BMC Server Automation Console.

The following figure illustrates the hierarchy of SCAP 1.2 objects in the console:

The SCAP data stream collection can contain multiple SCAP data streams, and each data stream can contain multiple benchmarks.

In the example presented here, the imported SCAP data stream collection (the first-level node under the SCAP folder) contains two SCAP data streams (second-level nodes). Each of these SCAP data streams, in turn, contains a single SCAP benchmark (third-level nodes).

For SCAP 1.0, an SCAP benchmark is imported and only the SCAP benchmark object appears in the BMC Server Automation Console.

To view summary information about an SCAP object

In the Depot, right-click the SCAP object (collection, data stream, or benchmark) and select Open.

A tab opens in the Content panel, showing summary information about the SCAP object, as described in the following table. All information comes from elements in the imported SCAP content.
