Viewing Accounts

The Accounts list page is only available to those with higher-level permissions in Kion. Typically, users will access accounts through the projects to which they have access.

To view all the accounts that you have permission to view:

  1. In the left navigation menu, select Accounts > All Accounts.
  2. You will see a list of all the cloud accounts you have permission to view.

Clicking the ellipsis menu on the right of an account gives you the option to:

  • View - view the details page for the account.
  • Edit - edit the account name and linked role.
  • Add to cache - move the account to the account cache.
  • Delete - delete the account. This removes all financial information for the account.
  • Move Account - move the account to a different project.

If you have access to log into the account, you'll also see a dropdown in the top blue bar that says Cloud Access. To log in, click on the dropdown menu, then click on the cloud access role you wish to use. You'll be taken directly to your console for AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud using the cloud access role you selected. If you do not have permission to log into this account, you'll see No Assigned Cloud Access Roles in the top blue bar.

Account Details: Compliance Tab

The Compliance tab includes the following sections, which display compliance measures relating to this account:

Compliance Summary

The compliance summary provides an overview of the object's compliance. It includes the following:

The doughnut charts on the Findings and Compliance Checks cards show findings and checks broken down by severity as follows:

  • Green: compliant checks (not applicable for findings).
  • Maroon: non-compliant checks/findings of critical severity.
  • Red: non-compliant checks/findings of high severity.
  • Orange: non-compliant checks/findings of medium severity.
  • Yellow: non-compliant checks/findings of low severity.
  • Blue: non-compliant checks/findings of informational severity.
  • Slate: suppressed findings (not applicable for checks).

These give you insight at a glance to see whether an item is fully compliant, and show you which non-compliant checks for that item need your attention most urgently.

You'll also see:

  • The compliance score for this item. For more info, see our Compliance Score article.
  • A count of findings/checks at each severity. Click any number to see a list of findings/checks at that severity.
  • A Total count of all findings/checks for this object.
  • A View All link to see all findings/checks.
  • A Compliance Trends graph that shows the total number of findings over time for this item. This visualization can be filtered to show daily active findings or cumulative active findings and can display up to six months of data.

Compliance Standards

This section displays a list of all the compliance standards that apply to this object.

Standards can be filtered by Compliant and Non-compliant states using the dropdown menu on the top left. Use the arrow buttons on the top right to navigate through the pages of results.

You can also:

  • Click on the standard name to visit the detail page for the standard.
  • Click the findings badges to view the findings.
  • Click the ellipsis menu on the right of a standard to:
    • Rescan all checks - run all checks in this standard again on demand.
    • Edit standard - edit the standard.

The findings badges on this page are color coded to indicate the highest level of severity recorded for the compliance checks with active findings. The colors represent the following:

  • Gray: no findings. All checks are compliant.
  • Maroon: highest severity non-compliant checks are critical severity.
  • Red: highest severity non-compliant checks are high severity.
  • Orange: highest severity non-compliant checks are medium severity.
  • Yellow: highest severity non-compliant checks are low severity.
  • Blue: highest severity non-compliant checks are informational severity.
  • Slate: suppressed findings.

Keep in mind that the color on the findings badge reflects the highest level severity recorded, not the count of findings at that severity level. For example, if you see the following badge, it means there are 62 active findings and at least one of the findings is high severity. It does NOT mean there are 62 findings of high severity.

You can click on the findings badges to see a list of the findings, including their severity information.
