Can I run a scheduled report on a scheduled scan?

I want to be able to run an external scan on an asset group every 4 days, then automatically have a report generated and sent out based on those scan results (and only those scan results).  But I cannot find a way to do this:

 

  • If I try to do it in the scheduled scan, I can only send out a notification that scan results are completed.  I cannot find a way to specify that a report be sent out.
  • If I try to create a "scan-based results" scheduled report, I must specify a single scan result to report on.  But I want it to use the latest results from a recurring scan - not a single, hardcoded scan result.  And I can't use a trending "last 1 days" host-based results report either, because that will pick up the contents from other scans (including internal scans that show different details than an external scan)

 

Is there a way to do what I want?

 

Thanks.
