Known Issue: Cannot Create Vulnerability Scan Job against Large Asset Group

Reported Version: 5.2
Deployment: All deployments
AlienVault Ticket ID ENG-102843

Description

Currently in AlienVault USM Appliance, on Environment > Vulnerabilities > Scan Jobs, you cannot launch a scan job against an asset group with more than 250 hosts. The web page attempts to load but fails, showing a blank screen with the menu items:

Workaround

To avoid this issue, launch the scan from the asset group instead:

1. Go to Environment > Assets & Groups > Asset Groups

2. Select the box next to the asset group you want to scan, and then click Actions.

3. Select Run Vulnerability Scan and specify the settings in the newly opened window.

4. Click New Job.

The Vulnerability Scan of the Asset Group should launch as normal.
