Events Created When an Asset Is Discovered

Role Availability Read-Only Investigator Analyst Manager

USM Anywhere gives you the option to enable or disable asset inventory alerts. You can configure your USM Anywhere to generate an event whenever a new asset is detected.

Note: Enabling this feature will generate system events for each newly discovered asset or service. Be prepared for an influx of system events when enabling this feature. It is recommended to run a few initial asset discovery scans to get a baseline prior to enabling this feature.

To enable event creation upon asset detection

  1. Go to Settings > System, and then select Inventory Settings.
  2. Toggle on Generate a System Event on Inventory Changes to enable this setting.
    Toggle this off to disable event creation.

Important: This setting is only accessible to users in a Manager role.
