Accept or Reject Mitigations from the Triage Flaws Page

Results and Reports

A user with the Mitigation Approver role can accept or reject proposed mitigations from the Triage Flaws page of your application. To see a list of proposed mitigations, in the Search field, select Mitigation and = Mitigation Proposed. To view all mitigations except the type you selected, click the equals icon again.

Note: You can only use the Triage Flaws page to accept mitigations for internally developed applications. To accept mitigations for third-party applications, use the Mitigated Flaws page.

Steps

  1. In the Triage Flaws page, select the checkbox in the Id column to check out the flaw. The green lock icon appears in the column.
  2. Click the arrow next to the checkbox to expand the details for the flaw.
  3. From the Action menu in the details, select Mitigation Accepted or Mitigation Rejected.
  4. In the Comments field next to the Action menu, enter the reasoning for your decision. You cannot save your action without entering comments.
  5. Click Save. Saving your action also checks the flaw back in.

You can delete mitigation comments if the mitigation is not yet accepted or rejected. To delete a mitigation comment, select the checkbox next to the flaw to check it out, and then click the trash can icon next to the comment you want to delete.

Note: A user with the Mitigation Approver role who has access to your application can also check back in a flaw that you have checked out.
