What does the Auto Delete Stored Data setting affect?




Within Vulnerability Management (VM) the Auto Delete Stored Data configuration under Scans > Setup only affects your scan and map results. We consider this raw scan/map data and also known as manual data. Most of your reporting features are being done on re-processed / normalized data also known as automatic data.  However, Auto Delete Stored Data does not delete automatic data, only the manual data.


The re-processing occurs after a scan completes and the next user login. It takes raw scan data (which is time bound - your scan data last Tuesday) and normalizes it to a host centric view (your vulnerabilities on host A plus its history, including the scan data form last Tuesday).
