Ungrouped vulnerable items

Ungrouped vulnerable items

Vulnerable items are automatically assigned to a group when they are imported. However, sometimes, if a vulnerable item is created manually, it can become an orphan. This module lists those vulnerable items without a group.

The ungrouped state occurs if a vulnerable item was created without a vulnerability, or there is no vulnerability group rule that assigns it to a group. In that case, view the list of ungrouped vulnerable items and create a vulnerability group rule for any orphan conditions you encounter. You can also add it to an existing group or create a Vulnerability Response group and add it.

Integration automated processes do not create orphans, so this use case is expected to be small.
