Hi Vanessa - I hope you’re having a great week so far!
It sounds like Glenda wants to see node data and not asset data if I’m understanding the scenario correctly.
What’s the difference between node data and asset data?
Node data is the data from the actual scan assessment, as-in what are the results from the scan prior to correlation. That is, the view of the asset from only this scan’s results without correlating any other results from the past or other data we know from other sources about this specific asset.
Asset data is the data about the asset in totality, as-in everything we know about that asset after correlation. That is, the view of the asset and everything we know about the asset from all known sources between discovery information, scan history and all correlated data for that asset.
You know you’re in an asset’s node when you are looking at an assets scan history and instead of the scan date you click on the IP address listed. This will show you the node for that scan.
How come I can’t see this information anymore?
Glenda should first confirm that she’s navigating to the node data appropriately using the steps I outlined above. Once she has, she should then confirm that she has configured the appropriate retention settings in her console that would allow her to retain the scan data necessary to view this information. If your organization has chosen to set a short time period for scan data then this could be why you don’t see some scan data anymore whereas you previously could. Please let me reassure you that there have not been any product updates that have taken this functionality away!
Is there an easier way to see significant changes in my environment?
Glenda might think that clicking on node data is neat for ad hoc requests but when it comes to maturing her Vulnerability Management Program she may want an overall easier way to view the significant changes in her environment, overall. Luckily, we have a Dashboard you can create named the Significant Changes in the Last 30 Days* simply navigate to the platform, click the dropdown for the Dashboards and choose the template and you can create a new Dashboard with this view for Glenda
Hope this helps!
