Hosts perform OpenSCAP scans regularly by the CRON schedule defined in the compliance policies assigned to hosts. However, you can also run a scan on a host for all configured compliance policies manually at any time.



  1. Navigate to Hosts > All Hosts.
  2. Click the hostname of the required host.
  3. On the host details page, expand the Schedule a job dropdown menu.
  4. Select Run OpenSCAP scan.


  1. In the host details overview, locate the Recent jobs card.
  2. Select the Running tab. Unless the job has already finished, the table shows a job called Run scan for all OpenSCAP policies.
  3. On the Recent jobs card, select the Finished tab.
  4. If the job has finished successfully, you should see the succeeded status in the row of the job.
  5. Optional: Click the job name to review invocation details.
