This report provides details about the security parameters that are configured in the CommCell environment. Many of the parameters provide links to additional reports that contain more detailed information about the security features that are available in the CommCell environment.

The columns in each section of the Security Assessment Report include the following information:

  • Parameter: The name of the security setting, the feature, or the option in the CommCell environment. Many parameters in the Info, the Warning, and the Critical status provide links to additional reports or documentation about how to configure the setting in the Action column.

  • Status: The current status of the parameter, including whether the parameter is in the Good, the Info, the Warning, or the Critical status. To view the thresholds for these statuses on the Health Report Parameters page, click the status.
