You use the compliance score card as an investigative tool when you evaluate the state of objects in your environment, or when you research the root cause of a problem. If the score card indicates a problem, you can view the alerts to see details about the violation. Violated rules are based on the symptoms defined in the compliance alert.

The compliance alerts, which have the subtype named Compliance, include one or more symptoms that represent the compliance rules. Compliance alerts that are triggered appear on the Environment > Object > Compliance tab as violations to the standard, and the triggered symptoms appear as violated rules. The rules are the alert symptoms, and the symptom configuration identifies the incorrect value or configuration. If a rule symptom is triggered for any of the alerts in the standard, the triggered rule violates the standard and affects the score that appears on the Environment > Object > Compliance tab.
