The compliance assess -m matches command enables you to run an assessment with tags that you specify. You can later use these tags to select, list, and delete similarly-tagged assessments. For more information, see the Match Parameters section of the compliance(8) man page. The remote administration daemon (RAD) can retrieve metadata from assessments that are stored remotely.
