Licensing Consumption


This document provides users with an overview of license consumption.


The Consumption view shows the aggregated information about successful scans and scanned assets, and are calculated and updated for each account once a day. A successful scan is defined as a scan with status FINISHED or ISSUES and are counted as the number of successful scans, and assets are counted as assets successfully scanned at least once during a period.

The consumption is aggregated by calendar month and are displayed as number of scans as well as number of distinct assets scanned during the period.

Consumption is grouped into

  • Cloud
  • Compliance
  • Docker Image
  • Netsec
  • Network
  • Outscan NX
  • PCI
  • Scale

Outscan NX

Outscan NX assets is an aggregation of:

  • Cloudsec assets (only for non-appliance)
  • Network assets
  • Docker image assets

Scan and asset counters are divided into those scheduled in OUTSCAN and those scheduled on a HIAB, where those scheduled on a HIAB have appliance in their name.

The consumption is aggregated by calendar month and a scan running across the boundary between months is counted to the month the scan ended in. All periods are defined in UTC timezone.
