1. overview

When either a user takes an action on a vulnerability or a playbook automatically started a remediation process, a Remediation Campaign will be created. Vulcan’s remediation campaign allows you to gain more knowledge about your organization's remediation process and provides the ability to manage it via a unified view. 

Remediation campaign is an entity that contains a set of vulnerability instances and remediation action(s) with the same goal:
“Fix X vulnerabilities on Y assets via Z actions”.

Campaigns are automatically created when you either initiate remediations on vulnerabilities from the Vulnerabilities tab or triggered a playbook from the automation tab.

  1. The ability to start a new campaign is available in both take action options:•  Open a ticket•  Deploy a patchSee detailed instructions on how to take these actions here.

  2. Name your campaign:In the right panel, you can give your new Campaign a meaningful, unique name or leave it with a unique id number.

Initiate remediation based on playbooks (automatically):

For each playbook - whenever a playbook is triggered:

  1. A new campaign is automatically created and displayed in the Campaigns tab. 

  2. Each campaign represents a subset of the playbook run divided by vulnerability name, remediation action and date of playbook run.
