Divisions

Introduction to divisions

Divisions can be one level of specificity within your organization's structure. Creating and using divisions in your application allows you to view data with business context. Vulnerabilities are associated to hosts, which are associated with the rest of the structure in a chain: Host > Business Service > Business Unit > Division > Company > Location. Data can then be sorted on reports and searches so that users can view, e.g. vulnerabilities by division.

The way different pieces of the organizational structure relate to each other can by modified by changing the reference attributes on each organizational data model.

Navigating to Administration > Organization > Divisions will take you to the Manage Divisions page, which displays a list view of divisions and allows for the creation of new ones.
