At the moment some parameters of the Asset Discovery are set at module configuration, so they are the same for all Scans executed by a Network Scanner:
It would be nice having the option to set different parameters on different Scans, while using the same scanner.
The main parameters that should be configurable at Scan level are: Hardware/Software Inventory and Use Nmap.
Also timeouts can be parameters that should be configurable at Scan, but they are less important.
Why this can be useful?
For example because with the same scanner you are scanning different subnets:
- a subnet where you have many switches, and you want to collect the connection inventory
- a wifi subnet, where you do not want to collect any hw/sw inventories
