This topic describes how to manually re-evaluate resources. After you modify rules or resources, you can manually re-evaluate resources if you want to immediately view the latest compliance evaluation results. If you do not manually re-evaluate resources, you can view the compliance evaluation results only after resource configurations are changed or rules are triggered at the scheduled time.

Prerequisites

The rule that you want to use to re-evaluate resources is in the Active state in the Status column.

Background information

You can re-evaluate resources based on the rules that you create. You can also re-evaluate resources based on the rules that Cloud Config creates when you enable compliance packages. The names of these rules are prefixed with the names of the compliance packages.
