Missing "SCAN ASSET NOW" button (randomly?)

Has anybody run into a case where the SCAN ASSET NOW button is missing from an asset page? Do you know why?

Seeing same issue on a few assets and unable to root cause issue.

Hi John & Christina,

Do the assets in question happen to have an Insight Agent installed on them?

Cheers,
Gina

Yes, as a matter of fact the asset where I discovered this “issue” does have an Insight Agent installed.

John,

If the asset has only ever been assessed by the Insight Agent then it will not have the “Scan Asset Now” button available from the GUI. If however, you add that asset to the scope of a site and scan it with a scan engine then it will thereafter present the option to “Scan Asset Now” within the asset page on the GUI. I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Gina
