Inventory Discovery by Manual Scanner deletes CI's


We have a strange behaviour in UCMDB 2019.02 with "Inventory Discovery by Manual Scanner".

For the first time, if we scanned a computer launching the scan.exe in the computer and copy the scanned file (local.xsf) to the Incoming folder of probe the probe procesates the scanned file and later we launch the "InventoryDiscoveryByManual Scanner Deployment" job in the UCMDB.

This job communicates with the probe and sends back to the UCMDB the results of the scanned file. The first time everything goes well. We can see in the UCMDB the node with their elements (DisplayMonitor, Installedsoftware...etc)

Later in time, if we launch again the "InventoryDiscoveryByManual Scanner Deployment" (with no scanned files in the probe) the CI's that we marked to AutoDelete in the "InventoryDiscoveryByManualScannerDpeloyment" adapter, deletes from the UCMDB.

The option "Enable Automatic Deletion" supposes to deletes the CI's thar are missing after discovery last run, but in the second launch of the job there are no scanned files to process.


Why is this strange behaviour.

 It sounds like a bug, which you have to report. You are right in the way how you expect the results.
