Vulnerability scanners don't have the whole picture, and Nucleus gives you the ability to change the severity of findings manually to suit your environment, in order to aid in tracking and managing vulnerabilities. If you want to change the severity of a finding within Nucleus, you can do so in the following way:
1. Navigate to Vulnerability Analysis > Active. You should see a list of all the vulnerabilities present in your organization.
2. Either scroll down to, or filter, until you see the vulnerability you of which you want to change the severity.
3. In the row of the vulnerability you want to change, look for Severity Column. On the right hand side of the column, you should see a little pencil icon. Click the Pencil Icon.
4. Nucleus will ask what the new severity should be. Select the correct severity from the drop-down and click Save.
Note, you can optionally enter in a reason for why the severity of the vulnerability is being change.
The finding's severity has now been changed! The status will persist even when new scan data pertaining to that finding has been uploaded.
Note: The same process can be repeated for findings you want to change back to their original severity.
