[mMC GUI] Scan Preferences

Scan preferences control common conditions of scanning and saving and uploading scan results. Scan preferences can be changed at any time.

To set scan preferences, press the cog icon in the top right corner. That opens the Scan Preferences dialog.

The Scan Preferences dialog contains two tabs: General and Data Encryption.

After filling in the fields in the Scan Preferences dialog, press Save to save changes.

If changes were made during the scanning, they will be applied after the scanning is completed.


The General tab allows customizing the process of scanning itself, setting the maximum scan size, and configuring the output in the offline mode.

To automatically archive sources that were successfully scanned and saved/uploaded, turn on the Automatically archive saved and uploaded data sources toggle.

The Scan Configuration section contains the following fields:



Max Parallel Scan Processes

Sets the maximum parallel scan number. The range is from 1 to 512.

Query Time Out (minutes)

Sets the maximum duration that a query can run before it is automatically terminated. The range is from 1 to 64.

The Scan Results Configuration section contains the following fields:



Output File Preferences

Provides customization options:

  • Custom file path.

  • Custom file name.

  • Save scan results unencrypted.

Max Batch Size (MB)

Sets the maximum batch size. The minimum value is 20 MB.

Data Encryption

The Data Encryption tab allows generating public and encryption keys.

The Encryption Key field shows the existing encryption key and the date of its last update. To regenerate the encryption key, press the Regenerate button. To change the encryption key manually, press the Edit button.

Public Key SHA256 and Public Key SHA1 are generated automatically and are linked to the encryption key. Once the encryption key is changed, the public keys are automatically regenerated.

The encryption keys must be associated with your migVisor account in mConsole, so that mConsole can decode the encrypted file. Do not use mMC copies from other organizations or keys not downloaded from your account.
