    Changing the Scan Name


      Hi all.


      Its seems impossible to change the name of a FoundStone Scan.

      I would like to know if this can be done by directly editing the proper database table.


      Best Regards,

          Normally we discourage people from tinkering with their database but this is a pretty benign change. The scan configuration name is only found in the scan dbo.ScanConfigurations table.


          The key is to make sure the ConfigurationName is unique. The only area I can think of that would be affected by this change is if you were generating asset reports based off of a scan name. Those templates would need to be updated.

            I always tell my customer to do it like that:

            New scan --> select existing scan --> assign new name to the scan

            After that, delete the old one.


            This way is fully supported and works fine, but all the old content will be deleted.
