As discussed in About the Vulnerability Ticket Threshold , USM Appliance sets a threshold for vulnerabilities and generates a ticket automatically whenever the detected vulnerability surpasses the threshold.
The vulnerability ticket threshold is a value that goes from 0 to 10, with 1 being a critical situation and 10, an uncritical situation. Zero (0) disables this option.
Any vulnerability with a higher risk level than the value you select automatically generates a vulnerability ticket.
The default vulnerability ticket threshold in USM Appliance is Low, but this is user-configurable.
Use the Vulnerability Ticket Threshold field to enter the value that should generate a ticket.
You can change the threshold from either Environment > Vulnerabilities > Overview > Settings or Configuration > Administration > Main > Vulnerability Scanner. Steps for each location follow.
