Creating Workflows from a Findings List View

Summary: How to create a new workflow from a findings list view (i.e., Host Findings or Application Findings) in Ivanti Neurons for RBVM/ASOC.

Workflows can be created from two locations in Ivanti Neurons for RBVM/ASOC: the Workflows page and the findings pages (i.e., Host Findings or Application Findings).

When creating a workflow from a list view in Neurons for RBVM/ASOC, make sure you know which findings you plan to add to the workflow. If you are unsure of what findings to add to a workflow, create a workflow from the Workflows page. This way, you can add findings to the workflow at a later date.

To create a new workflow from a findings page, navigate to either the Manage > Host Findings or Manage > Application Findings pages. This example will show you how to create a workflow from the Manage > Host Findings page.

Navigation - Manage - Host Findings

On the Host Findings page, select the finding(s) to add to the workflow by clicking the check box in the page’s first column. You may select several vulnerabilities at a time to add to the workflow.
