Learning Status

The Learning Status panel in the upper right corner indicates several possible states for each registered account:

  • Disconnected: A cloud account is Disconnected if no successful scan has ever occurred.
  • In Progress: A cloud account is In Progress when the account was connected less than 90 days prior. This ensures that the user activity has been profiled for a meaningful amount of time.
  • Completed: If not disconnected nor in progress, the account learning status is Completed.


Filter by Platform and/or Cloud Account.
