Which Scanning Engine to Use

As of April 20, 2022, Sysdig offers both a Legacy Scanner engine and the newer Vulnerability Management engine.

How do you know which one is currently enabled for your account?

  • If you have a top level menu entry labeled Scanning, then you are using the [Legacy] Scanning engine, and the relevant documentation is located here.

  • Instead, if the top level menu entry is labeled Vulnerabilities, then you are using the New Vulnerability Management engine, and the relevant documentation is located here.

I am currently using the Legacy Scanning engine, but would like to test the new, what should I do?

Contact your Sysdig representative; she/he will guide you through the process of migrating your software and vulnerability management configuration and data to the new Vulnerability Management engine.
