On the Scans page, you can create, view, and manage scans and resources.

When you access the Scans page, the My Scans folder appears by default. A list of scans appears in the center pane. This documentation refers to the list as the scans table.

In each folder on the Scans page, the scans table displays the scans stored in that folder and the status of each scan. You can use the scans table to view the results of a scan, view the scan's schedule, view the scan's last modified date, and launch or delete a scan.

Note: Scans owned by disabled users cannot launch. Scans running at the time a user is disabled will continue to run.

The following table lists the indicators that reflect the status of a scan.
