Can we run a policy report for a single host ? It is taking only asset groups as input.
One way is to create an asset group with just that IP in it. This way if you want to scan another IP you can relaunch the last scan and only have to add the IP to the asset group.
More in line what you wanted, you actually can scan an IP and not an Asset Group. When you create the scan just add the IP to the IPs/Ranges box instead of anything in the Asset Groups box. Same works on the report.
As for the creation of the policy, you are right. You can only add asset groups to a policy. Personally I think adding assets to policies is a strange idea. You can create an empty asset group for just this reason also.
I did the same, added some ip's as input directly into IPs/Ranges box, when it comes to reporting we currently do not have that option.
Thanks for the reply.
Great response Eric!
Also, if you want to just see an Assets compliance posture in the QG GUI, you can also use either interactive reports, or use Asset Search to bring up the host information page for an IP. That host information page will have a compliance and exception option in the left hand index. In the compliance option, the display will list every policy applied to asset groups that system is a member of, and, by clicking on the little icon with the red arrow, you can run a host based interactive report directly from there. But, unfortunately, you cannot export the report, it is more of an interactive GUI used to request exceptions but does give a "per host" view of that systems compliance posture to the selected policy.
Today you can not. But, we are working on a feature which will be available in the next release ( 7.9) which will allow users to run a policy report on a single HOST instance.
Thanks Bharat, could you please provide a timeline when 7.9 comes live?
7.9 is going to be available in the April time frame
Its will provide a way to report on a single IP or a single Database instance se below. Once the Single Instance option is selected, you will be able to chose a single IP or a single DB isnatnce in a list window.
