Article Summary

The folder pane on the left side of the Enforcement Sets page allows you to easily manage Enforcement Sets.

Working with Folders

Use the Folders pane to organize your Enforcement Sets into folders, which you can create and name according to your needs. This organization enables you to easily find related Enforcement Sets.
You can search for a folder using the Search box at the top of the Folder pane.

The following are the default system folders:

  • All Enforcements - This folder includes all Enforcement Sets in the system that you're authorized to see. This includes Enforcement Sets from Predefined Enforcement Sets, Shared Enforcements, Drafts, and Quick Actions folders. Note that you cannot save Enforcement Sets directly to the All Enforcements folder; only to a subfolder.
  • Shared Enforcements - This folder includes Enforcement Sets that you have access to or that you created from the Enforcement Center (using the Create Enforcement Set button) or from the Actions menu on an Asset page (Enforce> Create Enforcement). You can create new folders and subfolders under the Shared Enforcements folder. Enforcement Sets in a subfolder also appear in the parent folder.
  • Drafts - This folder includes saved Enforcement Sets that are not fully configured.
  • Quick Actions - This folder includes all enforcement sets, which are automatically created when you run Quick Actions (AKA Quick Enforcement Actions) on selected assets from an Assets page and then select one of the following from the Actions menu:
  • Predefined Enforcements sets - This folder includes Axonius-provided enforcement sets that you can use as a basis for a new enforcement set. Learn more on how to use Predefined Enforcement Sets.
  • Findings Notification Enforcements - This folder includes Enforcement Sets created by External Notifications in Findings Rules.

The following describes some rules regarding the system folders:

  • The Enforcement Sets in the Predefined Enforcement Sets folder are Read Only and cannot be modified or removed. You can save them as regular Enforcement Sets.
  • You can add and remove Enforcement Sets to/from the other folders - Shared Enforcements, Drafts, or Quick Actions folders.
  • You cannot delete or rename system folders, including All Enforcements, Shared Enforcements, Drafts, Quick Actions, Predefined Enforcements sets, and Findings Notification Enforcements.
  • Under the Shared Enforcements folder only, you can create up to five levels of subfolders, as necessary. When you hover over a Shared Enforcements subfolder, the Folders menu appears. From here, you can create a new subfolder, rename a subfolder, or delete a subfolder.


Creating a New Folder

You can create new subfolders (up to five levels) under the Shared Enforcements folder.

To create a new folder

  1. Hover over a folder.
  2. Click the Folders menu. The Folders menu opens (see above screen).
  3. Select New Folder. A new folder called 'untitled folder' is created inside the folder you selected.
  4. Click the Folder menu again, and select Rename to give a more appropriate name to your folder.

Renaming Folders

You can rename a subfolder that is located under the Shared Enforcements folder.

To rename a folder

  1. Hover over a folder.
  2. Click the Folders menu. The Folders menu opens (see above screen).
  3. Select Rename and give a new name to the folder.

Moving Folders

You can move subfolders within the Shared Enforcements folder.

To move a subfolder

  • Click and drag the folder/subfolder to a different folder.

Deleting Folders

You can delete any subfolders that you have created under Shared Enforcements. System folders cannot be deleted.

To delete a folder

  1. Hover over a folder.
  2. Click the Folders menu. The Folders menu opens (see above screen).
  3. Click Delete.
Deleting a folder does delete all Enforcement Sets in the folder. This cannot be undone. To delete the folder but keep the Enforcement Sets, move them to another folder and then delete the folder you don't want.

Moving Enforcement Sets to Another Folder

You can move selected enforcement sets from the Shared Enforcements folder or subfolder (or from the All Enforcements folder), to another Shared Enforcements subfolder. You cannot move Enforcement Sets from the Drafts, Quick Actions, or Predefined Enforcements sets subfolders.

To move Enforcement Sets to another folder

  1. On the Enforcement Sets page, select one or more Enforcement Sets. When at least one is selected, the Actions menu options become available.
  2. Click the Actions menu and select Move To Folder


A Folder List dropdown opens.


  1. Use the vertical and horizontal scrollbars to find the destination folder you want or search for a specific folder by entering part or all of its name in Search Folders.
  2. Click the destination folder, and then click Move. The Enforcement Sets are moved to the selected folder.
