Scenario What is Visible Suggested next steps 
A scanned asset with no vulnerabilities found

Status is seen in findings by the asset table



Message displayed in asset -> packages drill down

No action is needed. This is the ideal scenario
Scanned asset with vulnerabilities found

Status is seen in findings by the asset table

Asset -> packages drill down table example

Solve the vulnerability or deactivate monitoring on them to have an asset with no vulnerabilities
An unscanned asset with no vulnerabilities

Status is seen in findings by asset table

Message displayed in asset drill down

If monitoring vulns on this asset is intended, navigate to the Vulnerabilities Settings and into the Vulnerability Scanners tab to check if the integration is configured correctly. Some integrations allow you to control (enable or disable) vulns integration separately, aside from the rest of the resources we might be able to fetch. If this is correctly connected, the issue might be on the scanner configuration or on our side.

If monitoring is not intended, leave it as it is.

Unscanned asset with vulnerabilities  This scenario is not supported since an unscanned asset won’t have vulns registered anywhere due to it being unscanned.
