Scan Status

After manual scanning is triggered, you can check the progress of the scan ID on the Scan Status page.

During manual or offline rescan, if a file under a specified directory does not exist, the scan marks that the data was deleted in Classification. This is applicable only when realtime scan is disabled. The deleted resources are stale and can be viewed under Stale Resources.

Scan IDs that have not resulted in any tag classification are periodically removed from the status page.
