The Scans View

The Scans view presents the details of all scans. To customize the view,

  2. Add desired columns by clicking on the Show/Hide Column icon.

Click on a scan to view the following information about that scan. The output from each scan depends on the source of it, for example, the output from Scale scans will include the URLs and a detailed breakdown of the scan flow.


The URL list can be downloaded to a file by clicking the green Download URLs button in the lower right corner.


Status presents the different stages of the scan along with their duration:



The scan schedule has started and is waiting for a slot to start scanning.


The scan has been paused.


A slot has been assigned to the scan and it is in the process of starting the scan.


The scan is currently running.


The scanning engine has finished collecting facts, and the reporting tools are currently running.


The scan cycle is completed.


The scan has encountered some issues.


The scan is in the process of stopping.


The scan has been manually stopped.


The scan has failed to complete its scan cycle.

If any issues occur during the scan, they are displayed in the "Status details" column for the issues' title as well as the Status tab for the issues' details


The Scans View will show one or more issues for several scans as shown if there is any issue with the scan regardless of the scan status.

If there are no scans to show the view shows an empty state with the message: "No items to display. For SWAT/Assure/Snapshot subscriptions, assets are continuously monitored by Outpost24 Appsec team and therefore no scans can be shown here."
