This information in this verison of the Compliance tab is based on from the vRealize Operations Manager alerts that are configured with the compliance subtype. The compliance value is used as investigative tool when you are evaluating the general state of objects in your environment or when you are researching the root cause of a problem.

The Compliance badge value is a score based on alerts in vRealize Operations Manager where the alert symptoms are the compliance standards. The symptoms are compared to the collected data, if the symptom is triggered, then it is presented as a violated standard on the Compliance tab.

You must customize a policy to enable the compliance alerts. For example, the VMware vSphere solutions provides the alerts for the ESXi host and virtual machine sections of the vSphere Hardening Guide.

To view the Compliance badge, click Environment in the left pane and select the object, click the Analysis tab, and click the Compliance tab.
