Define Policies on Discovery Results

Define Policies on Discovery Results


I would like to have the following function implented:

It is quite a huge work to check if discovery finished successfully each night. So for us it would make sense to set some kind of polices on the results of a discovery job.

E.g. if you know a discovery job with 10 triggered CIs will normally finish with 8 success and two warnings it should be possible to mark this result as compliant.

Because 10 triggered CIs are quite a small amount it should also be possible to define a result as "more or less" compliant. Means the result that has been marked as compliant might differ for an amount of x percent. It should be possible to define this amount in the UI.

If the policy will get broken for some reason the admin should get informed by mail and/or should see it in the dashboard.

Show all Discovery Jobs and the broken ones maked red or only the broken ones.
