When a Manager adds a scanner appliance to a sub-user’s asset group

A Manager can edit an asset group created by a sub-user and add a scanner appliance to the user’s group. In this case the scanner appliance becomes available to the sub-user and will be visible on the scanner appliances list. For example, let’s say a Scanner user creates AG3. A Manager edits AG3 to add Appliance3. Now the Scanner user has access to Appliance3 because it was added to his group.

When a Unit Manager or Scanner adds scanner appliances

When a Unit Manager or Scanner with the “Manage virtual scanner appliances” permission adds new virtual scanner appliances to the subscription the user must pick an asset group to add the scanner to from the Choose an Asset Group list.

If the user was assigned the All group the user will see all of the asset groups that are in scope of the user’s business unit, plus their own personal asset groups.

Choose an asset group for virtual scanner from list of all groups

 

If the user was not assigned the All group, the user will see the asset groups that were assigned to them, plus their own personal asset groups. For a Scanner user this may be a limited set of asset groups. For a Unit Manager this will be all asset groups that are in the user’s business unit.
