Certification template audit types

When you create a template, ServiceNow assigns an Audit type that determines which tables and conditions are available in the certification template. This value is based on the application from which the template is created. Each application lists only the templates with the associated type.

Available Condition Builders

These are the available condition builders for each audit type:
  • Compliance: Runs audits on any set of ServiceNow records, not only configuration items (CI). This audit type provides the following types of conditions for any ServiceNow table:
    • Attribute: Sets conditions for the attributes of the records.
    • Related List: Runs audits on records in tables that reference the table defined in the template.
  • Architecture Compliance: Defines the following types of conditions for tables that extend the Configuration Item [cmdb_ci] table.
    • Attribute: Sets conditions for physical attributes of CIs, such as memory or disk size.
    • Related List: Runs audits on records in tables that reference the table defined in the template.
  • Desired State: Defines the following types of conditions for tables that extend the Configuration Item [cmdb_ci] table.
    • Attribute: Sets conditions for physical attributes of CIs, such as memory or disk size.
    • CI relationship: Defines the relationships these CIs have with other CIs. An example of a relationship is a business service, such as Outlook Web Access, that depends on a server.
    • User relationship: Defines the user who reviewed the log records. This is the only operator available with this condition builder.
    • Group relationship: Defines user groups who backed up this CI. This is the only operator available with this condition builder.
    • Related List: Runs audits on records in tables that point toward the table defined in the template.
