Downloading a Compliance Scan Report from Chef Compliance Server


Hi all,

I can’t seem to find an answer to this anywhere so my apologies in advance if I missed something obvious! I’m looking for a way to download a Compliance Scan Report from my Compliance server. Is this possible or is there only the web ui available for a Scan Report? These scans are clearly saved somewhere on the server so I’m thinking I just don’t know the location/directory to which they’re being saved.

I’d like to be able to import it into a spreadsheet as a checklist of sorts for security compliance.

Thanks in advance for any answers!



It’s not part of Compliance yet, they’re moving this into Chef Automate. In
the meantime there are APIs you can use to create a report:

If I get a chance to work with a customer to do some reports against this,
I’ll be sure to write it up.

Where you able to scan your nodes in chef automate? It seems like I am unable to run the compliance profile through the dashboard.

Thank you!
