Upgrade, Downgrade, or Cancel A Vulnerability Scanning Option

When you downgrade or cancel a vulnerability scanning option, the changes will take place at the end of the billing cycle.

When you upgrade, the changes will take place immediately. Your next bill will be pro-rated to reflect this upgrade.

CoalfireOne portal access will revert to read-only after cancelling Vulnerability Scanning for Compliance. Read-only access will allow users to download past reports. It is recommended that users download past reports immediately, as the data is not retained indefinitely.

Prior to cancelling, it is recommended that users cancel scheduled scans. Canceling scans prevents users from getting unnecessary notifications.

  1. In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), in the left-side navigation, click Security.

  2. Click Vulnerability Scanning.

  3. Click Compliance.

    • If you do not have the vulnerability scanning add-on product, then click Order in the Marketplace.

Access CoalfireOne Portal and Schedule A Scan

You must use the CoalfireOne portal to schedule a scan.

Resyncing Scan Targets Between AMP and Coalfire

As you assign or unassign IP addresses to your virtual machines, those which remain assigned are made available within the Coalfire Navis portal as potential scan targets. Normally, such changes are immediately available within Coalfire, but this can occasionally fail. In the event you are missing scan targets, you can attempt to remediate this by performing a manual synchronization between AMP and Coalfire:

  • In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), in the left-side navigation, click Security.

  • Click Vulnerability Scanning.

  • Click Compliance.

  • Click the gear icon, and then select Resync Targets (this option is only displayed if there is at least one unsynced scan target)

If you attempt the above steps yet still have issues with scan targets appearing missing within Coalfire, please create a ticket with Armor Support for additional assistance.
