Compliance 2.0 is a Technology Preview feature only. Technology Preview features are not supported with Red Hat production service level agreements (SLAs) and might not be functionally complete. Red Hat does not recommend using them in production. These features provide early access to upcoming product features, enabling customers to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process.

For more information about the support scope of Red Hat Technology Preview features, see Technology Preview Features Support Scope.

You can view the compliance results associated with your cluster by using the compliance 2.0 feature in the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes (RHACS) portal. The feature collects compliance information gathered by the Compliance Operator into a single interface.

For more information about using the Compliance Operator, see Using the Compliance Operator with Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes.

Currently, the compliance 2.0 feature and the Compliance Operator evaluate only infrastructure and platform compliance.
