The default values for some controls must be specified as integers or whole numbers. The control type determines the type of comparison performed to calculate expected values and determine compliance.

A single integer in scans results data (x) is compared to a single integer or range defined for a control (Y). The control values include a default value (an integer or range of integers) and an operator. The operators are described below.

Operator |
You are compliant when |

less than |
X is less than Y |

greater than |
X is greater than Y |

less than or equal to |
X is less than or equal to Y |

greater than or equal to |
X is greater than or equal to Y |

not equal to |
X is not equal to Y |

equal to |
X is equal to Y |

in |
X is in Y |

in range |
X is in the range Y |

Tell me about the "in" operatorTell me about the "in" operator

For the "in" operator, the default value includes a list of integers. Each integer with a colon. For example, 1:3:8:4. If the scan results return a "3" then the control Passes because the 3 is in the list of integers defined for the control. If the scan results return a "7" then the control Fails because the 7 is not in the list of integers defined for the control.

Tell me about the "in range" operatorTell me about the "in range" operator

For the "in range" operator, the default value includes a single integer of a range of integers. For example, 1-5. If the scan results return a "3" then the control Passes because the 3 is in the range defined for the control. If the scan results return a "6" then the control Fails because the 6 is not in the range defined for the control.

A list of integers in the scan results data (X) is compared to a single integer or range defined for a control (Y). The control values include a default value (an integer or range of integers), a cardinality and an operator. The possible cardinality and operator combinations are below.

A list of integers returned in the scan results (X) is compared to a list of integers defined for a control (Y). The control values include a default value (a list of integers) and a cardinality. The possible cardinalities are below.

Cardinality |
You are compliant when |

contains |
X contains all of Y |

does not contain |
X does not contain any of Y |

intersect |
any integer in X matches any integer in Y |

matches |
all integers in X match all integers in Y (listed in any order) |

is contained in |
all integers in X are contained in Y |
