Setting the Security Settings module parameters

The Security Inventory (SecurityInventory) module shows if the related device includes the Security Inventory module. By default, when the agent is installed, the Security Inventory module is configured to be loaded at start time if the required license is valid. The security inventory in BCM Inventory allows you to collect information pertaining specifically to the security and vulnerability aspect of your devices. The Security Inventory is collected via operational rules.


Default Value


Data File


Specifies the location and name of the security inventory .xml file. This file defines all attributes and values which is recovered from the remote clients to set up the security inventory. The path to the file may be entered as a local path or as a URL such as _


. The path is relative to the agent configuration file. You may modify the entry, but be aware, that if you wrongly modify, the security inventory may no longer work.

Upload on Startup


Defines if the inventory is uploaded to the master after being updated the first time on agent startup. It is recommended to activate this option to ensure that the inventory is updated at least at every startup of the agent. If it is deactivated a regular update and upload of the inventory must be configured through operational rules.

Differential Upload


Specifies if the inventory is to be completely replaced which each upload when differences are detected or only the delta, that is, the modifications of the inventory. If the inventory template is changed the next inventory will always be a complete inventory, even if this option is activated.

Upload Interval (sec)


Defines the upload period for the inventory in seconds. If it is set to 0, no uploads are configured by the module, but they can still be managed through operational rules. The setting only configures the upload of existing data, it does not include an update of the inventory.

Minimum Gap Between Two Uploads (sec)


Defines the minimum time interval between inventory uploads in seconds. If the value is set to 0 this option is deactivated and there is no minimum interval.
