Managers have access to all scanner appliances automatically and can use them for scanning. Users with other roles do not. To allow a Unit Manager or a Scanner to launch scans using a scanner appliance, you must first grant those users access to the appliance.

 

For Scanners who are not in a business unit:

  1. Manager: Add the scanner appliance to one or more asset groups.
  2. Manager: Edit each user's account and add the asset groups (containing the scanner appliance) to the user's Assigned Asset Groups list. Completing this step grants each user role-based access to the appliance.

 

For Unit Managers and Scanners in a business unit:

  1. Manager: Add the scanner appliance to one or more asset groups.
  2. Manager: Edit the business unit and add the asset groups (containing the scanner appliance) to the business unit's Assigned Asset Groups list. Completing this step grants the Unit Manager access to the appliance.
  3. Manager or Unit Manager: Assign asset groups to Scanners in the business unit. Edit each user’s account and add the asset groups to the user's Assigned Asset Groups list. Completing this step grants each user role-based access to the appliance.
