This command adds records to the vulnerability assessment test exceptions.

If a test on a specific datasource fails, it checks the last record of the test exceptions table for that test and datasource. If the execution date is contained within the to and from dates of the last record, the test is set to PASS, the recommendation is set to the explanation from the exceptions record, and the result text is set as follows:
Test passed, based on exception approved by: .... effective from date to date.
The API only adds records to remove an exception. A new record should be created with new dates as needed.
