Release Quarantined Components

Overview

Quarantined components are not available for download in your proxy repository. Before you can release a component from quarantine you must resolve any policy violations. Check out the following resources to learn more about Policy Remediation.

When all policy violations are resolved you can release a component from the Repository Results screen or from the Firewall tab. 

A component released quarantine cannot be put back into quarantine, even if it has subsequent policy violations. To re-quarantine a component, delete the component from its repository. The component will be quarantined again if it violates a policy that is set to Fail at the Proxy stage during an audit.

Only violations on policies that are set to Fail in the Proxy Stage need to be waived to release the component.  Non-failing violations do not need to be waived.
