Assets can be searched by IP, Hostname, etc. Another option is to use the UUID written to the endpoint on Windows and Unix operating systems. We will discuss searching by this identifier below.
For ephemeral IP addresses and with Agentless Tracking and Unified View enabled, it can be difficult to find the scan results from your most recent scan by searching by IP within Asset Search. This is in part due to the record merging into an existing record from a previous/original scan.
Note: this use case is geared more towards ephemeral IP addresses; however, can be used whenever unable to locate an asset by IP, Hostname, NetBIOS, etc.
