Tracking Method in Scan

We are trying to manage the tracking method for all of our assets in this way:

If NetBIOS exist then track by NETBIOS

Else if NetBIOS not exist and DNS does exist track by DNS

Else track by IP address


The issue come when we re-scan an asset then it gets added as duplicate being tracked by IP address so we end up having one tracked by IP and another of the same machine being tracked by NETBIOS.

Then we need to go and manually change the tracking method and purge the older data. (API does not let you purge older data like the GUI)


The question is can we change how these machines are tracked in the scan Option Profile so we can avoid this issue?
