3.7. Scan a Single System

A single scan or standalone scan is a scan task which is assigned directly to one or more assets. This is meant to be used as a one time scan for a handful of assets.

The creation of a scan is performed within the Assets view. There is a button for each asset to create a new scan and to show all past scans. You can also assign a single scan to multiple assets. To do this, select your assets and click the Add Scan button in the top right corner.

Click on the "THOR" button in the Action column in the Asset Management view.
