Defining exceptions for components

In some situations, it is useful to define one or more components as exceptions to certain compliance rules.

For example, a Compliance Job may identify a particular component that does not satisfy compliance rules for a component template but you are certain that the component should be allowed in this context. For example, you may know that the server will soon be modified so that it satisfies the compliance rule in the future.

When defining exceptions to compliance rules, you can flag either a single component or multiple components.

To flag a single component as an exception to compliance rules

  1. In the Jobs folder, select a Compliance Job, right-click, and select Show Results.
    A new tab opens in the content editor. It shows the Compliance Job results.
  2. In the hierarchical tree on the left of the tab, expand a particular run of the Compliance Job, and navigate to any single component listed under the Server View or Rules View node.
  3. Right-click the component and select Exceptions.
    The Edit Component dialog box opens, and the Compliance Exceptions tab is automatically selected.
  4. Use the Edit Component dialog box to define any compliance exceptions. For more information about this procedure, see Component - Compliance exceptions.

To flag multiple components as exceptions to compliance rules

  1. In the Jobs folder, select a Compliance Job, right-click, and select Show Results.
    A new tab opens in the content editor. It shows the Compliance Job results.
  2. In the hierarchical tree on the left of the tab, expand a particular run of the Compliance Job, and do any of the following:
    • Using the Rules View node, select a component template, compliance rule group, or compliance rule that has multiple components associated with it. Right-click and select Set Exception.
    • Using the Rules View node, select a component template, compliance rule group, or compliance rule that has multiple components associated with it. In the content editor, select multiple components. Right-click and select Exceptions.
    • Using the Server View node, select a server that has multiple components associated with it. In the content editor, select multiple components. Right-click and select Exceptions.
      The Set Component Exceptions wizard appears.
  3. Use the Set Component Exceptions wizard to define compliance exceptions. For more information about this procedure, see Component - Compliance exceptions.
