Creating a Compare Compliance Action

Use the Compare Compliance Action to compare two or more values and take action based on that comparison.

The following procedure continues from step 6 in the Creating a license type by using basic mode and step 10 in the Creating a license type by using advanced mode sections.

To create a Compare Compliance Action

  1. On the Compliance Actions page of the license type wizard, select Compare in the Action field and click Create.
    The Compare Action dialog box is displayed.
  2. Type a name for the action in the Name field.
  3. Build the expression using the controls in the toolbar above the Expression field. As you build the expression, it is displayed in the Expression field.


    As you build the expression, you can delete it to make corrections at any time by clicking Clear.

    You can use the following rules to build your expression:

    1. Select the rule:
      • GetCertificates — Specifies the instance ID of the certificate as a value in the expression
      • GetQuestions — Specifies the compliance question you select as a value in the expression

        GetCertificates and GetQuestions are the default rules that appear. As you create actions, they also appear for you to select.


        Some of the data created due to connection rules can also be selected here. For example, you can query relationship tables that were populated during a previous connection run.

    2. Select the operator.
    3. Specify a free-form value in the Value field and click Add Value.
  4. Click Save and then click Close.
  5. After you have finished adding all of the compliance actions you require, click Done to complete the license type wizard.
