    As well as all settings being available for bulk edit you don't know what to edit unless you can produce a report where the input is a check, selection of checks or all checks and the output is their configuration.

     

    Consider if you have a range of URLs that you define as 'ad tags' which you want to block or severity map.

     

    There is no way of applying this policy across multiple checks unless you do it by hand. If this FR was delivered there would be a method of doing that but no method of actually producing a report about how checks are configured.

     

    To be honest after you have tackled bulk viewing/reporting & editing the next logical step is to allow customers to establish a house style that their checks should conform to i.e. they all have to use user agent X - and be able to enforce that style. AWS trusted advisor has elements of this approach.

     

    At the moment I'm just burning support's time accomplishing things that I need but which are a waste of human interaction and prone to human error.
