Average Function Type

Use average widgets to track the risk level for the number of days it took to close the vulnerability. The Mean Time To Remediation (MTTR) option is auto-selected in Select Field.

For example, you could calculate the average number of days it took to remediate vulnerabilities from their discovery dates.

Note: The Advanced Settings feature is disabled while using the Average widget.
