Has anyone else created custom controls within the Policy Compliance module? It seems limiting and not very straight forward.
- When creating a simple registry check it seems I need to select all the "Windows Technologies" that I want to target. Is this really necessary? Is there a simple way in which I can just target "Windows" instead of selecting each one manually. When a new operating system comes out I am going to need to revisit this policy and update the control to check for these additions. If it was just targeting Windows OS I wouldn't need to perform this step. Especially if I have multiple controls.
- Is there anyway to "test" the control directly from the control windows instead of attaching it to a policy for scanning, only to see it fail and than re-work the control again? This really slows down the process.
- When creating a Custom Policy, again why do I need to assign "technologies" to it; shouldn't the control have that desired information?
