About the target type schema

You select a target type to evaluate a set of assets against a standard. The standards are based on the asset types. You cannot evaluate an asset of the type Oracle Configured Database against an ESM standard.

Control Compliance Suite lets you create your own target types to filter the assets of a particular asset type for evaluation.

Consider the following example:

Windows machines is a predefined asset type. If you want to evaluate a standard only for the Windows XP machines, the Windows XP machines can be your target type.
