# Check Settings

Each check can be assigned a severity. Only checks with a severity of danger or warning will be validated. The results of these validations are visible on the dashboard. In the case of the validating webhook, only failures with a severity of danger will result in a change being rejected.

Polaris validation checks fall into several different categories:

To change the default severity levels, or to turn checks on or off, you can create your own config.yaml:

  tagNotSpecified: ignore
  runAsRootAllowed: danger
  pullPolicyNotAlways: warning
