The Accept Risk Rules page displays a list of accept risk rules configured in Organizational users must add accept risk rules before the rules appear on this page. For more information, see Add an Accept Risk Rule.

Adding a rule moves vulnerabilities from the unfiltered cumulative database view. These vulnerabilities are not deleted, but only display in the cumulative database vulnerability view if the Accepted Risk filter option is checked.

Administrator and organizational users can manage recast risk rules. You can access information on what particular vulnerabilities or hosts have been declared to be accepted and, if noted in the comments, the reason. If you decide to unaccept a vulnerability, you can delete it

To view details for a rule, click the row.

To delete the rule, click the gear icon. Then, click Delete. To apply your changes, click Apply Rules in the upper-right corner.
