Assessments Page: Overview

These icons are also displayed in the list view and are a crucial component of running Update Remediation by Assessment (URbA). Essentially, it takes the current state and status of all hosts and vulnerabilities for a specific point in time and compares that with the data from the last assessment. Based on that data comparison, the platform can evaluate if hosts and vulnerabilities have been closed, opened, or reopened.

    List View Columns: In the list view, users now have access to two additional columns: the type and status columns. The type will indicate if the assessment is user-created or system-created and the status column indicates if the assessment is locked or unlocked. Part of the new features with the Assessment list view is that system assessments are locked by default and can only be deleted. User assessments can be locked and unlocked except when the data is processing.
