About Exceptions

Exceptions are a way to temporarily change the status of a control on a particular host from Failed to PassedE (passed with an exception). You can request an exception for a failing control on a specific host. Qualys provides a documented, repeatable workflow for requesting, evaluating and approving exceptions. Approvals can be temporary, allowing issues to be automatically revisited after a specified length of time.
