How to maintain activated assets in EC2?

Question asked by Fabio Cerullo on Aug 1, 2017

Hi

 

I have deployed an EC2 virtual scanner for an AWS environment.

 

I also configured the connector to 'activate' newly discovered assets for VM (Vulnerability Management). 

 

That will typically work in a 'stable' environment where AWS instances are not terminated.

 

However, after some time I'm running into an issue that 'terminated' AWS instances are still consuming VM licenses.

 

I read an article online that suggests going through the asset list and manually purge these instances (see below).

I would appreciate if someone could provide me a more automated manner of doing this.

 

Thanks,
Fabio
