USM Anywhere™

Deleting the Assets

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst   Manager

Keep in mind these points when you are deleting assets and your environment has an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Sensor, Microsoft Azure Sensor, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Sensor, or a VMware Sensor installed:

  • If you delete an asset, but it is still active/visible in your network environment, the asset is automatically added to your asset inventory for any asset discovery jobs that run after the deletion action.
  • If you delete an asset that has alarms or vulnerabilities associated to it, the asset state will be marked as "terminated”. All saved data associated to the asset is maintained in its current state.
  • If you delete a sensor, all assets on the sensor will be removed from USM Anywhere. However, if you redeploy the sensor, asset configurations that point to the replaced sensor will have the universally unique identifier (UUID) information in that configuration updated to the new sensor UUID.
