For scanning, Discovery uses credentials that the asset should recognize to log in.

Details are here, in the Credentials subpage

Hi Robert,

Thank you for the reply. It says about credentials but not about the permissions? Like does it need to have admin permission or just a user permission? etc

I've always used admin accounts (just in case).

The documentation says that credentials are using SSH for linux, WMI for Windows, and SNMP for network devices.
