Arctic Wolf Unified Portal Telemetry Management

Updated Jan 17, 2024

Enable or disable host identification

Host identification is required for normal operation, but you can disable it if you want to temporarily disable a scanner. When you disable host identification, vulnerability scanning stops working, and dashboard reporting errors will occur after 24 hours.

  1. Sign in to the Arctic Wolf Unified Portal.

  2. Click Telemetry Management > Scanners.

  3. Click Configure for the scanner that you want to view.

    Tip: The scanner must be online for configuration changes. If needed, use filters to limit your results. See Scanner filters for more information.

  4. In the Scanner Configuration section, do one of these actions:

    • To enable host identification:

      1. Click the Host Identification toggle to the on position.
      2. (Optional) Click the Vulnerability scanning toggle to the on position.
    • To disable host identification, click the Host Identification toggle to the off position.

  5. Click Update Configuration.

    This button is not available if the scanner is offline.
