I would like to know whether there is any way to create a report to see the differences between last two patch report. So, I wanna see which patches have been applied and which patches are still going on between two scans.
I'd use a Scan Report Template with search a list that contais all patchable vulnerabilities and also configured to compare only the last two scans.
To do that, first you would have to create a search list tha contains only vulnerabilities with patch available. Type "search list" within the Online Help Search tool to find out how, if you don't know already.
The second step is to create a scan report template that is set to use the searchlist you just created. On this report template the options ""Status with Trend: Analyze vulnerability history (Auto) " and "Include vulnerability information for the past 2 detections" must be checked.
Finally, run a scan report using the new template and you will have a comparsion.
This method will not compare patches: it will compare the vulnerabilities mitigated by them. Note that some patches fix a lot of vulnerabilities at once. You might want to create a patch report with a patch report template on whitch the "QIDs that will be fixed by each patch" checkbox is marked to be able to relate patches to QIDs(vulnerabilities).
This is the way I would do it. There might be a better method, though.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for your reply. I tried it, yes it does not give patch information but it works when I choose the vulnerabilities that have patches. Just I need to add patches to the report manually after that. It d be nice if it d be automatically.
Maybe a future request will work for patches
