About Target Groups

A Target Group allows you to set permissions on which hosts users can scan or view. By default, all users can scan all hosts. You can restrict this by removing scan permissions on the default target group and creating additional target groups with more granular permissions.

Target Group Types
System System target groups are used to set permissions on which hosts a user can scan or view. By default, all users can scan all hosts. You can restrict this by removing scan permissions on the default target group and creating additional target groups with more granular permissions.
User User target groups do not grant scan or view permissions. Instead, user target groups provide more granular filtering on the hosts permitted to you in system target groups. You can use these lists when filtering dashboards or configuring scans.

You can use target groups in scans based on the permissions assigned to the target group.

Note: When you create a new target group, by default it has No Access permissions.
