You should now be able to filter by what level of compliance you are and make it simple to find any out of compliance VMs.

Summary:
There may be times when for one reason or another a VM may become out of compliance with the associated storage policy.  In these instances it is nice to identify the VM and work to resolve this issue.  I hope y’all found this article to be useful.
