Add a SharePoint scan

Add a scan configuration.


Specify the credentials for the "Process Account".

The account is not used to scan the SharePoint site collection. This account will be set up in a later step.

After successfully checking the "Process account", the selection of available resources opens.


  1. If necessary, change the "Process account".
  2. Specify the URL of the site collection. Confirm your entry with the ENTER key.

For on-premise SharePoint servers, you can specify the name of the server and later select the sites/site collections.

  1. Select the added entry (set the checkmark).
  2. Select one or more collectors to perform the scan.

Collector indicator green:
A connection to the specified SharePoint URL was successful. This does not mean that all content can be completely scanned. Please refer to the information on the scan account required in the next step.

Collector indicator red:
Unable to successfully connect to the specified SharePoint URL. You can still save the settings and correct them in the following step.


You have created a new SharePoint configuration.

The warning indicates that you must configure additional properties before you can successfully perform a scan.


The following steps apply only to SharePoint on-premise.

Click on "Select SharePoint elements" in the SharePoint configuration.


Select the resources to be scanned.

This option is only working if WinRM is configured and CredSSP in the additional SharePoint properties is enabled.
