Scan Complete Email for Compliance Scans

How do I enable email notifications?

Select User Profile below your user name (in the top right corner). Go to Options to select the email notifications you want to receive.

What is included in the email?

The Scan Summary at the top of the email gives you key information about the scan task. This include the scan title, start date and time, duration, target asset groups, the compliance profile used, the total number of hosts scanned and the number of active hosts (hosts up and running at the time of the scan).

Tell me about the Next Action

The "Next Action" displayed is None if the scan finished and no action is required. If the scan was paused by a user, then it must be resumed manually from the scan history list within 30 days of the initial launch date or it will be canceled. For a paused scan that will be resumed automatically, the date and time for the resume action is listed.

How to view your scan results

Click the link provided at the end of the scan complete notification to view the scan results.

The scan results provide general information about the scan task, a list of hosts that were scanned and not scanned, and preferences set in the compliance profile applied to the scan task. Use the reporting feature to generate specialized compliance reports based on the scan data to identify whether hosts are compliant with user-defined policies.
