The Scheduling tab lets you schedule reports to be sent out based on either a target selection or by a report template.
Create a Report Schedule
Click New to display the Maintaining Report Schedule presenting the following options:
Name of the scheduled report.
Define the report type:
The next date and time, this report should be sent to the recipient.
How often the report if scheduled.
Not active until Schedule Timing has been set.
|Day in Week/Month|
|Run Until||End date|
Select which level of detail the report should be in.
Select what kind of information that will be included in the report. (one or more can be selected)
Send reports without vulnerabilities
Select this feature to send the reports even if there are no vulnerabilities present in it.
|Target Group Depth|
Selects the depth on how deep the summary of the target group will go.
For example: Groups with 10 levels and the Target Group Depth set to 5, will only show the first 5 levels in the summary, omitting the results from level 6-10.
Include report in PDF format
Attach the report as a PDF file.
Include report in XLS format
Attach the report as a XLS file.
Include report in XML format
Attach the report as a XML file.
Compress attachments (zip)
It allows you to create a zip attachment which decreases its size.
Enter a password if you wish to export the report password protected.
The XML format does not support password protection and need to be compressed into a ZIP-file by selecting the Compress attachments (zip) option, where as the PDF and XLS can be password protected as directly without compressing.
Recipients can be set as Email, Managed Report, and Database.
|Type||Direct the report to either Email, Managed Reports, and Database (HIAB only).|
When set as email the report will be sent to address specified under Recipient.
|Type||Set as Email|
Provide a name to whom you wish to send the report. Custom is only available if you have super user privileges.
E-mail PGP Public Key
Add a PGP Public Key file to be used for encryption, when emailing the report or select unencrypted.
Enter a custom subject for email.
Custom text which will be included in the email.
When OUTSCAN sends an encrypted email with an attachment, the attachments sometimes cannot be decrypted properly in the Outlook client.
If that happens, files can be decrypted with following ways:
Using command prompt.
gpg --output <output file name> -d <encrypted file>
- Using the GNU Privacy Assistant (GPA) installed with gpg4win installation.
- Using Thunderbird client to open encrypted report emails on windows computers.
When set as Managed Report the report can be viewed in the Managed Reports tool in Main Menu > Managed Reports.
|Type||Set as Managed Reports|
Set a title to the report
|Token||Set a token. See Access Tokens for more information.|
|Report Group||Select report group where the report will be displayed in Managed Reports tool|
HIAB can integrate with databases and use it as a recipient for the reports.
To use Database as a recipient, it first need to be integrated. See Database Connector for more information on how to set up Database integration on your HIAB.
To use the Database recipient:
- Select Database in the type drop-down menu in the Recipient area
- Enter the table name you have set up in the Database Connector integration.
