The Omnext Portal allows users with either the ‘Admin’ or ‘Contributor’ role to ‘Whitelist Best Practice Findings’. Whitelisting a Best Practice Finding will exclude the specific finding from your analysis results.
NOTE: A whitelisted Best Practice Finding does not ‘delete’ the finding from your results. It is simply ‘filtered’ from the Omnext Portal front-end and can be ‘included’ again at any time.
Once you have logged-on to the Omnext Portal and you have chosen the application of which you would like to see the analysis results from the ‘My Portals’ page, navigate to the ‘Risk Findings’ page.
The bottom of the screen shows a grid which contains a list of all the best practices findings that have been found.
If you would like to Whitelist a Best Practice Finding, click the ‘Dotted icon’ left to a ‘Best Practice Finding’ in the grid. This will show you a menu.
Click ‘Add to whitelist’ in the menu. This will open a pop-up.
Whitelisting follows the principle of ‘comply or explain’. Hence, if you would like to whitelist a Finding, you will be asked to provide a ‘Description’ or explanation on why you would like to whitelist this Finding. This Description will also be visible to other users.
Once you have filled in the Description, click the ‘Add to whitelist’ button. The Finding will now be whitelisted and your analysis results will be updated accordingly.
If you would like to ‘review whitelisted Findings’ you can navigate to the ‘Whitelist’ page from the menu on the left side of your screen. The Whitelist page shows you how many and which Findings have been whitelisted, when they have been whitelisted and by whom.
To view more details on each whitelisted Finding click the ‘Dotted icon’ left to a whitelisted Finding and click ‘Details’. This will open a pop-up showing more information on the whitelisted Finding.
If you would like to undo the whitelisting and ‘Include’ the whitelisted Finding again, simply select ‘Include’ from the menu. This will de-whitelist the Finding again.
