NOTE: An incident is generated per image. So, if there are three images specified in the scan, then three incidents might be generated. This depends on the rules of the policy selected for the scan.

  • For VM Instances

    When a scan is complete, you can view the results or return to scan on the Policy > On-Demand Scan page.

    You can view policy incident violations on the Policy > Policy Incidents page. Filter for Incident Type > Vulnerability Violation

    • Scan Containers in Instances. Select to also scan containers within a VM for vulnerabilities. This only identifies vulnerabilities that are introduced into the runtime containers in comparison to what is identified in the image.
    • Projects:
      • All Projects. Scan all projects. 
      • Include Specific Projects. To include only specific projects, click Edit and select the applicable Project checkbox.
