Core Inspectors

Begin learning about the syntax and constructs that are common to both the Client and the Session Relevance languages.

You can create and test your custom Relevance queries locally on the Client system using the Fixlet Debugger or on the Linux CentOS interactive sandbox available under Online Evaluator.

If you own an IBM BigFix Lifecycle or an IBM BigFix Compliance version 9.5 Patch 2 or later license, you can run your Client Relevance Language queries on the target clients also directly from the IBM WebUI using the IBM BigFix Query Application. For more information, click IBM BigFix Query.
