Note: For each agent synchronization job result for a child node, Tenable.sc imports a metadata record containing no vulnerability data. This metadata record appears as a second result on the Scan Results page. To prevent Tenable.sc from importing the metadata file, configure and launch agent scans from Tenable.sc, as described in Agent Scans.

To view a list of scan results:

  1. Log in to Tenable.sc Director via the user interface.
