I want to know what files are skipped in scanning and why. I've enabled all the logging but still in ods report logs no files related data is available..

Hi @saurabh_tiwari 

ODS debug logging is not something part of the feature at this point. As a result getting those files details not possible. We are expecting this feature to be part of 10.7 ENSLTP which tentative to release on March, 2020.

Another point. Skipped files are normally excluded files, zero size files and softlink files. Once we have 10.7 released, you can actually see those files details.
