Supported tests

David Rothenberg

The OVAL Interpreter supports a large number of the tests defined in the OVAL Language but not all of them. Support for tests has been developed as needed due largely to development prioritization.

The following tests are currently supported in the OVAL Interpreter:

If you are looking for a test and don't see it on the list above please review the Feature Requests for the OVAL Interpreter. If the test you are looking for is not already being requested please submit a request so that we can consider implementing it for a future release. If you find a feature request for the test you are looking for please add a comment to the request so that we will know you would also like the OVAL Interpreter to support the test.

For more information about the tests listed above please see the OVAL Language documentation.
