Exclusively agent driven flow - how to change probe names?

Test upgrade of data flow probe, changed probe name.

Some existing discovery status of scan files from Inventory of scan file job start reporting errors "cannot find probe 'oldProbeName' Task for TriggerCI will not be created". I searched and found an old post talking about IPs and running discovery jobs to update IPs but ours is exclusively UDA agent driven flow (uploading scan files), no other discovery jobs.

Is there a way to tell discovery that the new probe name is taking over for the old probe name?

    There are two tasks that you would need to do if you change the name of a probe

    Before the change

    • The agent needs to know the name of the new probe it communicates with

    After the change

    • Delete the scan_file CIs whose LastDiscoveredByProbe is equal to "old-probe-name".  This is afe since the proper sca_file CIs would be created using the new probe
