Assign Tasks


This document describes how to assign tasks to users.


Assign Task lets you assign a user to mitigate findings. Priority can be set, where P5 is highest by default. The task can be customized in the ticket system to include a due date, add an assignee, and supply additional comments.

There are two types of ticketing systems.

  • Internal 
  • External 

The Internal refers to the default ticketing system which is used in OUTSCAN/HIAB. External systems can be configured in Main Menu > Settings > Integrations tab. For more information see Netsec Integration
