IBM PowerSC should provide an option to mark a failed compliance rule as exception in the GUI

The IBM PowerSC Compliance Automation feature allows users to run compliance check. Once the check is complete, the GUI shows the result and displays the failed rules. If at least 1 rule has failed then the compliance status of the LPAR is shown as NON-COMPLIANT. Many times the failure could be a false positive. For example, if there is an error in the compliance check script, it incorrectly reports this as a rule failure. This makes the LPAR non-compliant even though it is not true. If there are too many false positives, the customer might miss a real security incident. To fix this, the PowerSC GUI should provide an option to mark a failed rule as exception. This would be similar to FIM events where the customer has a choice to hide a FIM event. This way if the failed rules are marked as exception, the LPAR status should be shown as COMPLIANT (with warnings displaying the exceptions).
