Improved Compliance Hub experienceโ€‹

We've been busy this week rolling out fixes and improvements to make Compliance Hub an even better experience.

  • Compliance control pages now include tooltips for the completion column.
  • Controls listed in exceptions now link to the individual control pages.
  • The completion column in control pages now supports ascending and descending sorting.
  • The completion percentage shown for frameworks now better reflects progress.
  • There are improved recommendations when there are no checks or assets in a control.
  • Compliance completion bars in Firefox now size properly at all window dimensions.

  • Don't show duplicate checks in the registry when a policy uses variants.
  • Remove a black box displayed in the registry when a policy uses policy variants.
  • Add three additional controls to the CIS Amazon Linux 2023 policies.
  • Improved descriptions and remediation steps in the CIS Distribution Independent Linux Benchmark policies.
  • Log errors for missing API support when scanning GCP organization and projects instead of failing.
  • Give a unique name to gcp-subnetwork assets that includes the region in the name.
  • Fix the grouping of GCP organizations and projects in the fleet view.
