In EmpowerID, an audit is a user-defined, logically named object for identifying or grouping recertification tasks and running the Recertification policies that generate those tasks. After creating an audit, you add Recertification policies to it to define what you want to audit. Then when the audit runs, it compiles those Recertification policies, creating the appropriate recertification tasks.
Before you can add a specific Recertification policy to an audit, both the audit and the policy must exist in EmpowerID. If they do not, please see Creating Recertification Policies and Creating Audits for more information.
This opens the ViewOne page for the Audit. View One pages allow you to view information about an object in EmpowerID and manage it as needed.
You should see the policy added to the Recertification Policies grid.
From the Recertification Policy grid, click the Exclusions button for the Recertification policy.
This opens a view for the selected Audit Recertification policy. The view has two grids: an Exclude These Entitlements grid and an Exclude These Entitlement Types grid. These grids allow you to exclude entitlements granted to specific actors—such as an individual person or group—as well as an entitlement type, like belonging to a role or group that has no bearing for the audit.
To exclude a specific entitlement, click the Add (+) button in the Exclude These Entitlements grid, select the appropriate actor type from the Type drop-down and then search for and select the specific actor.
To exclude an entitlement type, click the Add (+) button in the Exclude These Entitlement Types grid, select the type from the Type drop-down and then click Save.
Once you have completed added your Recertification policies to the audit, the next step is to generate the recertification tasks associated with the policies. You do this by compiling the audit. This is demonstrated in the Compiling Audits topic.
