Add an Accept Risk Rule

If you create an accept risk rule, any vulnerabilities that match the rule are automatically accepted. Risk accepted vulnerabilities do not appear in a vulnerability search if your filter excludes Accepted Risk vulnerabilities.

To view or delete accept risk rules, see Accept Risk Rules.

To add an accept risk rule:

  1. Log in to SecurityCenter as an organizational user with appropriate permissions. For more information, see User Roles.

  2. Click Analysis > Vulnerabilities.

    The Vulnerability Analysis page appears.

  3. Click the analysis tools drop-down box and select Vulnerability Detail List, Vulnerability List, or Vulnerability Summary.

    The page refreshes to show the analysis tool view you selected.

  4. In the row for the vulnerability you want to recast, click the gear icon.
  5. Click Accept Risk.
  6. (Optional) In the Comment box, add a comment.
  7. (Optional) In the Expires box, select the date you want the accept risk rule to expire.
  8. In the Repository section, select one or more repositories where you want to apply the rule.

  9. Click Submit.

    Note: There can be a short delay between clicking on Submit and vulnerabilities showing the new risk acceptance. It may be necessary to reload the filters to view the applied changes.
