Managing audit waivers

Waivers allow you to temporarily affect how systems are audited and might affect audit scores. They are useful when you have a system that you know might be out of compliance but you don't want to bring the system into compliance for a temporary period.

For example, you might have systems in the Accounting Department that you don't want to patch near the end of an accounting cycle. You can create a waiver that temporarily ignores any missing patches on systems until after the end of the accounting cycle. You can also create another type of waiver that suppresses the systems from being audited.
