Creating a specification from rules is a three-step process that begins by clicking the Export rules to specification button on the Discovery rules screen.
Only discovery findings marked as sensitive (red) can be exported in the form of a specification.

In the last step, a list of all items that will be exported to the specification will be shown. Figure 4: Items ready to be exported
If you select to use existing specification, select one of the specifications from the list (in combo box will be shown a list of all available specifications - only specifications in status Draft can be selected). Figure 5: Export rules to an existing specification
When you select existing specification, additionally it is possible to select how to merge changes into the existing specification. There are two possibilities:
In the last step will be shown which fundamental data (FD) will be used - fundamental data from the selected specification or fundamental data from rules. Figure 6: Items ready to be exported
