Force refresh server assessment (meta)data

New Contributor

Hi Guys, 

 

got a question related to the server assessment VA /Advisor recommendation.

I just fixed a VA item, but the docs says it will take up to 48 hours before it will refresh the data/ before i can see new VA results.

"How quickly will the scanner identify newly disclosed critical vulnerabilities?

Within 48 hrs of the disclosure of a critical vulnerability, Qualys incorporates the information into their processing and can identify affected machines."

 

Is there another way to force this ?

my reference is this link 

 

regards,

Joe

The same article says: "Scanning begins automatically as soon as the extension is successfully deployed. Scans will then run at four-hour intervals. This interval isn't configurable.". 

 

Also, you can trigger an on-demand scan to expedite the process: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/security-center/deploy-vulnerability-assessment-vm#trigger-an...
