Resmo July Newsletter: What’s new?

Time flies, indeed. Greetings from our fifth monthly newsletter! We’re back to share a couple of exciting product updates and community highlights from last month. 

Product Updates

The Resources page got a new look and feel

Resources page improvements

Smoother navigation through sidebar: The Resources page now has a collapsible sidebar for faster navigation between your resources.

Resource detail view on modal: When you click on a resource, its details open in a modal, allowing you to quickly browse and travel between resources. Pro tip: hit the escape (ESC) key on your keyboard to close the modal.

Resource summary: Track overall metrics such as the number of resources by integrations and resources categories and see the last visited resources.

Introducing $variables

Variables allow you to define static or dynamic constructs and use them in queries. Our goal is to write reusable queries faster. Available types include string, boolean, number, SQL query, array, and object.

You can create new variables under settings -> variables. ie. You add a variable user, and you can type $user to refer to that construct in your queries.

Custom compliance packs for custom needs

Now, you have the freedom to create your own custom packs by combining a set of rules. As with managed packs, you can utilize continuous controls, compliance scores, and exports. 

  • Organize and automate specific compliance checks based on your needs
  • Save your teams’ time, boosting productivity in the long run. Learn more.

Pack exports

pack exports

You can easily generate detailed exports of your compliance reports, including rule details, results, and suppressions.

  • Export in HTML and PDF formats
  • Receive the export link via email
