Changing the status of a finding allows users to track their vulnerabilities indefinitely, rather than having to mark the same vulnerabilities as false positives over and over again every time a scan is run. Nucleus allows you to manually mark findings as mitigated, compensated for, accepted risk, and false positive in order to help get a more accurate view of your risk from vulnerabilities.
For more information on the status of vulnerabilities, refer to the Finding Status Definitions support article.
You can change the status of a vulnerability on an asset easily in the following way:
1. Log into Nucleus.
2. Navigate to Vulnerability Analysis > Active.
3. Click on the vulnerability that you want to view more details for. This should pop up the vulnerability details page. You should now see a description of the vulnerability, a solution to fix the finding, and a list of assets which are affected by the vulnerability.
4. Use the checkboxes on the right in order to select the assets for which you want to change the status.
5. Use the Change Status dropdown to select which status you want to select.
The assets which were selected should be changed to reflect the status you selected. This status will persist until you change it again.
