Target Groups

Note: System target groups and related functionality asset isolation have been deprecated. To manage view and scan permissions in, use access groups.

A target group allows you to construct a list of scan targets by FQDN, CIDR notation, or IP address range. You can then specify which users in your organization can use the target group in scan configuration or filtering dashboards (including workbenches).

If you grant a user permissions in a target group, the user can use the target group in the Target Groups option for scan configuration. However, you must also grant the user Can Scan permissions in an access group for the targets, or excludes the targets from the scan results. For more information, see Access Groups.
