How To: Set a Baseline (UI)¶
This sets your baseline to the results of the most recent scan by default. To select an older scan, use the date picker.
You can also set or update a baseline using these other methods:
What’s a Baseline?¶
A baseline is a “snapshot” of resource configuration at a point in time. When you set a baseline, Fugue lets you know of any changes to that configuration, known as drift. Drift detection is automatically enabled when the baseline is set.
Whether you’re creating your first baseline or updating it, it’s called setting a baseline.
Setting Your First Baseline¶
You can set your first baseline from the “Establish Your First Baseline” dialog on the Events or Baseline pages. Select “Use Latest Scanned Resources”:
Select “Yes, Establish Baseline” to confirm your selection.
You’ll see a success message. That’s it – you’re done! The baseline is set to the results of your most recent scan. However, you can select an earlier scan with the date picker to establish the baseline using an earlier state of your infrastructure (see instructions below).
