This topic describes how to confirm and delete associated assets that are discovered by Cloud Security Scanner.

Background information

When you enable Cloud Security Scanner for an asset, Cloud Security Scanner automatically starts an asset discovery task. Based on the assets that are manually and automatically associated with Cloud Security Scanner, the task uses an asset discovery model to periodically scan for assets that are associated with Cloud Security Scanner, and synchronizes the asset information to the Scan Targets > Asset Discovery page.
Note Currently, the asset discovery task runs once every seven days.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Cloud Security Scanner console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Scan Targets > Asset Discovery to view assets that are associated with Cloud Security Scanner by asset discovery.

      Note You can delete assets that you do not need on the Assets Without Tags page.
    • Delete: Remove discovered assets from the Asset Discovery page.
