Exceptions

Take action

Accept, reject or reopen exceptions. All actions you take will be logged in the history with your name and a time stamp.

Tell us when the exception will expire

Exceptions are temporary. When the end date passes, the exception status will change to Expired.

Assign to a user

Select a user responsible for this exception. Pick from the list of users with privileges to the host.

Reassign to another user

Select another user with privileges to the host(s). When reassigning multiple exceptions, we'll only list users with access to all of the selected exceptions.

Add comments

Your comments will be saved in the exception history.

Reopen on change of evidence

If a future scan returns a different value for the control (and the control is still failing), we'll change the exception status from Approved to Pending, and it will need to be re-evaluated and approved again.
