Order Of Precedence For Filtering Used Within A Patch Scan Template (Version 9.1 And Older)

Version 3

    Description

     

    When setting up a custom Patch Scan Template, it is important to note the order in which the scan will perform any filtering that is set up.

     

    The order of precedence is as follows:

    1)
    Product filter: This filter takes precedence over all other filters. If you elect to scan or skip one or more specific products, those products will be scanned or skipped regardless of how the other filters are configured.

    2) Skip Selected:
    Any patches that are specified as Skip Selected on any of the three remaining filters (Patch filter, Patch Type filter, and/or Criticality filter) will be excluded from the scan. (But see the note above about replaced patches.)

    3) Scan Selected:
    If any patches are specified as Scan Selected on any of the three remaining filters (Patch filter, Patch Type filter, and/or Criticality filter), then only those patches will be included in the scan.
