Scanning asset groups or tags

Hello All


I have in my subscription both IP and CA licences and my network is divided in several asset groups. my current setup is I scan those asset groups several times a month but since I also have cloud agents I would like to avoid scanning those assets (laptops, servers) whose IP's fall in those assets groups.


I have read that, rather than using "Assets" and I can use the "tag" option for scanning and use the asset group as a tag and then use the "Cloud agent" tag as en exclusion.


I would like to avoid having duplicate asset records (asset that has both CA and IP licenses)




When scanning like this, will the scan pick a new device connected to the network even if it has not been scanned before?


Thanks in advance
