View the analysis results

View the file analysis results on the Analysis Reports page. In dynamic analysis if you have selected multiple VM profiles, the file has one Job ID and separate Task IDs for each VM profile. In Static Analysis, when a sample is detected then only one entry with one Job ID and one Task ID is created.

  • Older reports are deleted when the data disk of Advanced Threat Defense is 75 percent full. You can view the current data disk space available in the System Health monitor of the Dashboard. If you configure the options under FTP Result Output in the User Management page and use the set resultbackup enable command, then Advanced Threat Defense saves the results locally and sends them to the configured FTP server for your long-term use.
  • To save the FTP results for a longer time period, configure the FTP Result Output settings, then enable Set resultbackup from the Advanced Threat Defense CLI.
  • While you view the reports, the maximum number of reports you can navigate to are one million. If you want to view the reports beyond that, use the search filter to reduce the result of the number of reports.
