Rule Based Analysis Reports

The Rule Based component will generate reports for the resources specified in the configuration files according to the rules and parameters defined in the corresponding configuration files.

A configuration file is line based text organized as key/value pairs. General properties of a configuration file include:
  • empty lines are ignored.

  • lines that start with # are ignored (comments).

  • keys do not contain spaces or equal sign =.

  • a value starts at the first non-space character after =and finishes at the end of the line.

  • values can expand on multiple lines by means of a single backslash character followed by newline.
