  • Both analysis and remediation checks are included
  • Some of the checks allow you to use the parameterized setting to enable customization for compliance evaluation. Note that parameterization and remediation actions require the creation of a custom site.
  • We have revamped the architecture of this checklist. Below are the changes:
    • Replaced “Deploy and Run” with “Environmental setup task.”
    • Changed the folder structures on the endpoint related to BigFix scanning.
    • Removed the “Filesystem Scan” options during “Environmental Setup Task” as there are no rules specifically using it.

Actions to take:

  • To subscribe to the above site, you can use the License Overview Dashboard to enable and gather the site. Note that you must be entitled to the BigFix Compliance product, and you must be using BigFix version 9.5 and later.
  • If you use custom sites, then you cannot use the existing custom site anymore. Since, the architecture has been revamped. Create a new custom site from the latest external site.
