Using the Enforcement Center Page

  • Dark
  • PDF

The Enforcement Center page displays a list of all Enforcement Sets and allows you to create, view, modify, duplicate, run and delete them.

Each Enforcement Set executes a saved query, called the trigger, and then automatically performs the configured actions on the assets that match the query. You can also perform relevant Enforcement Actions on the results of queries run on the Adapter Fetch and Activity Log pages, thus enabling you to create actions on information generated by Axonius itself.

To open the Enforcement Center page, click the image.png icon on the left navigation panel.

  • The new format for the Enforcement Center is displayed by default. When you visit the Enforcement Center page, a New Feature Announcement is displayed describing the new features. This announcement will be displayed until you view all the pages of the announcement.
  • You can choose to use the old format by toggling Turn on New Enforcement Center to off. Reverting back to the old format of the Enforcement Center will be supported until March 31st 2023.



The Enforcement Center page consists of the following main elements:

  1. The Folders pane
  2. Search/Filter bar
  3. Enforcement Sets table
  4. Total Results
  5. The Actions menu
  6. Create Enforcement Set

The Folders Pane

Use the Folders pane to organize your Enforcement Sets into folders which you can create and name according to your needs.

These folders are default:

  • All Enforcements - includes all Enforcement Sets
  • Shared Enforcements - Includes Enforcement Sets that you created and/or have access.
  • Drafts - Includes saved Enforcement Sets that are not fully configured.

You can add and remove Enforcement Sets from these folders but they cannot be deleted or renamed.

You can create as many folders as necessary. When you hover over a folder, the More menu appears. From here you can create a new subfolder, rename the folder or delete it.


Deleting a folder does not delete the Enforcement Sets or affect them in any way. When a folder is deleted, the Enforcement Sets are still included within the All Enforcements folder.

See Managing Enforcement Sets for more information.

The Enforcement Sets Table

The Enforcement Sets table displays a list of Enforcement Sets. Each row in the Enforcement Sets table lists one Enforcement Set. To view all Enforcement Actions in the set, expand the row by clicking the down arrow to the left of the Action icons. Users can only see the Enforcement Sets created by other users in the same Data Scope.


The Enforcement Sets table includes the following fields:

  • Actions - The icons indicate the type of actions configured in the Enforcement Set.
  • Enforcement Name – The Enforcement Set name.
  • Query Name – The selected saved query for the Enforcement Set trigger.
  • Scheduling Type - The trigger schedule type.
  • Next Run - The date and time of the next scheduled run of the Enforcement Set.
  • Total Runs – The total number of times the Enforcement Set was run.
  • Last Run – The date/time the Enforcement Set was last run.
  • Last Run Status - Whether the last run of the Enforcement Set completed, failed, or partially completed.
  • Last Updated – The date/time the Enforcement Set was last edited.
  • Updated by - The name of the last user who updated the Enforcement Set.
    • The user name is displayed with a prefix:
      • Internal - A user who was defined internally in Axonius by one of the system admins.
      • SAML or LDAP - A user who logged in using the LDAP or SAML based login options.
    • If the user no longer exists in the system, the displayed user name is displayed with a “(deleted)” suffix.
    • Hover over the field to display the user's first and last name in addition to the user name, if this exists.

Filtering and Sorting the Enforcement Sets Table

You can filter and sort the Enforcement Sets to find the Set you are looking for.


You can filter the Enforcement Sets table by selecting from the following lists:

  • Search Enforcement Sets - Search on all text fields: Name, Main Action and Trigger Query Name.
  • Query - Filters the list for all Enforcement Sets using the selected trigger query.
  • Asset Type - Filters by the type of asset to which the Enforcement Action applies.
  • Scheduling Type - Filters by the type of schedule configured.
  • Category - Filters by the Enforcement Action category.
  • From/To date selection - Filters by the date the Enforcement Action was run.


You can sort the Enforcement Sets table by any text column.

To sort the table

  1. Hover over a column header. A small arrow appears. The up arrow indicates that the column is sorted from low to high. The down arrow indicates sorting from high to low. Sorting columns alphabetically is case insensitive.


  2. Click the small arrow to set a sort order.

Total Results

The total number of Enforcement Sets found for the search criteria is displayed on the top left side of the Enforcement Sets table just under the Filter bar. If no filter criteria are selected, Total represents the total number of Enforcement Sets defined.


Actions Menu: Duplicating, Deleting and Running Enforcement Sets

You can copy, delete or run an Enforcement Set from the Enforcement table.
