When creating an asset search report in the "Reports" section, is there any way to make that report a scheduled one that runs on a regular basis?
Do you mean VM->Assets->Asset Search? If that is what your doing then no you can't schedule but you could setup a TAG to represent the search and come back later. Can you clarify your request?
Sort of. I know the search itself cannot be scheduled, but I went to VM --> Reports and created a new Asset Search report. Can that be scheduled?
ahh had not noticed. I don't see an option here to schedule and I have not reviewed the API Documentation to see if I can kick off that way. I will do some testing and let you know. Only thing I can see is to build the report and then use API access to trigger a rerun of the report. Not sure why you can't schedule.
The other way that may work is to define the tags and then run a scan report based on the TAGs but look for something simple like the os or something. Sorry I don't have a better option for you.
Ok, thanks so much for looking into this! I find it strange that something like this can't be kicked off automatically, because that would be very useful.
The only way I do something like this is create TAGS to represent what I need and that can be updated in the background based on new scan data all the time.
