For example:

2. As attache CSV, Vulcan will generate the full list of fixes, by effectiveness hierarchy. On the CSV, the solutions will contain the solution source by link and not the full description.

Vulcan will attach the CVE and CWE information to the JIRA description field:

  • The option to 'Mark issue as done' in the Playbook was enabled

  • All vulnerability instances in a campaign created by a Playbook are fixed

  • There is a transition that allows a ticket to transit from Open >> Done
