Manual Application Evaluation

When you use the Evaluate a File option, IQ Server generates a report that gives you a baseline of your application’s health. Before you can initiate an evaluation this way, you need the following items:

  • At least one organization and one application. For information on creating these entities, see Organization and Application Management.

  • View IQ Elements and Evaluate Applications permissions for the application you wish to evaluate. For details about setting permissions, see Role Management.

To evaluate an application:

  1. Log in to IQ Server as a user assigned to the Policy Administrator or Owner role for the application.

  2. Click the Organization & Policies icon


    on the IQ Server toolbar.

  3. Select an application in the sidebar.

  4. Go to the Actions menu, and click Evaluate a File.

  5. In the Evaluate a File dialog, do the following:

    1. Click the Choose File button and then navigate to the file you want evaluated.

    2. Click to select a stage to associate with the evaluation.

    3. Click Yes or No to specify whether notifications of policy violations will be sent as defined in the policy’s configuration settings.

    4. Click the Upload button to begin evaluating the selected application. An Evaluation Status message is displayed.

  6. When the evaluation is complete, click the View Report button to open the Application Composition Report for your application.
