Enforcement Sets Page

Article summary

The Enforcement Sets 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.

Opening the Enforcement Sets Page

To open the Enforcement Sets page

  • Click the Enforcement Center EC_Icon icon on the left navigation panel. The Enforcement Center opens.


The Enforcement Sets page consists of the following main elements:

  • Folders pane (left pane)
  • Search/Filter bar
  • Enforcement Sets table (main area)

The Folders Pane

Refer to Managing Enforcement Sets on how to organize your Enforcement Sets and manage them.

The Enforcement Sets Table

The Enforcement Sets table displays a list of Enforcement Sets in the default view last saved by the user. 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 Enforcement Sets created by other users in the same Data Scope.


The Enforcement Sets table includes the following fields:

  • Actions – The icons indicate the types of actions configured in the Enforcement Set.
  • Enforcement Name – The Enforcement Set name.
  • Query Name – The name of the query selected as the Enforcement Set trigger.
  • Scheduling Type – Indicates how often or when the Enforcement Set runs.
    • For multi-action Enforcement Sets, indicates for each Enforcement Action whether it is the Main Action, Post Action, Success Action, or Failure Action.


  • Run Priority - The position of the Enforcement Set in the queue of Enforcement Sets scheduled to run during the Global Discovery Cycle. Run priorities range from 1 (highest priority; first to run) to 20 (lowest priority; last to run). Default run priority is 5. All Enforcement Sets of the same run priority are run in the order that they are submitted when the discovery cycle begins. To learn more, see Setting the Run Priority.

  • 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 names in addition to the user name, if this exists.
  • Folder Path – The name of the folder and subfolder (if relevant) in which the Enforcement Set is listed.

Filtering the Enforcement Sets Table

You can filter the Enforcement Sets table to view a subset of Enforcement Sets by selecting from the following lists.

  • Search all enforcements – Searches on all text fields of the actions: Enforcement Name, Main Action, and Query Name.
  • Enforcement Name - Filters the list by Enforcement Set name.
  • Query – Filters the list for all Enforcement Sets using the selected trigger query.
  • Module – Filters by the module (asset) to which the Enforcement Action applies.
    • From the Module dropdown, select one or more asset types to return the Enforcement Sets that apply to these asset types. The assets in the dropdown are listed according to asset category (as on the Assets page). In addition, it is possible to type and search to easily locate in the dropdown, the asset type required.
  • Scheduling Type – Filters by the type of schedule configured in the Enforcement Set.
  • Action Type – Filters by the Enforcement Action type.
  • From/To date selection – Filters by the date the Enforcement Action was run.

When done viewing the filtered table, you can proceed as follows:

Filtering by Enforcement Set Name

In the Enforcement Name search box, type all or part of the Enforcement Set name, and then from the resulting list of Enforcement Sets containing the searched string, select the relevant Enforcement Set name.


Resetting the Filters

Click Reset to reset all filters and show all Enforcement Sets in the system.

Defining the Default Table View

By default, when you open the Enforcement Sets page, the table shows all Enforcement Sets created by you and other users in the same Data Scope. This is the system default table view.


Saving the Current Table View

Click Save View (see above screen) to save the current table view as your default table view. Once saved, each time you open the Enforcement Sets page, the table opens in the saved view, i.e., Enforcement Sets are filtered according to the filters defined in the saved view.

Opening the User Default Table View

After applying different filters to the table, you can revert the table to display in your saved default table view without having to leave the Enforcement Sets page and reentering it.

Click My View (see above screen) to open the Enforcement Sets table in your default table view, which is either the system default table view or the last table view that you saved.

Editing Run Priority Inline

You can edit the run priority of an Enforcement Set scheduled to run every global discovery cycle directly from the Enforcement Sets table. Learn how to inline edit the run priority.
