Check template application
You can create your own new templates in several different ways:
By selecting the "New" button, you can create your own Check template from scratch.
Creating a new check template
After providing a description, you can select one or more Check groups and/or subgroups to include in your Check template. The group "Compliance" for example is very suitable to create your own compliance template.
Activating a Check and adapting Check threshold values
In the Check list, you will see the Checks that are selected for the template. By flagging the Check as "Active" (1) it will be included in your template. By selecting the pencil icon in the "Value action" column (2), you can adapt the threshold values (3,4) for the check. The initial values shown are based on our own best practice. After customization of these values you save the check by choosing the "Ok" button (5).
Any values that have been changed from their default value, can be identified by the following icon:
Check value has been changed from its default value
After you have activated and adapted all checks that you want included, you can save the check template by pressing the "Save" button.
It is also possible to copy an existing Check template by selecting the Copy icon button of an existing Check template:
Creating a new Check template via copy of an existing template
The selected Check template is opened and you can adapt and save it with your own description.
Selecting a Scan as basis for a new Check template
After pressing the button "New" from the Check template menu, provide a template description (1) and select the "Import scan" button (2). A selector box opens and Scan selection is possible (3,4).
After a Scan has been selected, all the checks contained in this particular Scan are copied to the new Check template.
The copied Checks may be set to "Active" and their threshold values can be customized, after which the Check template can be saved.
It is possible to export and import Check templates to/from a (XML-based) file:
