Requested to enhance to display in Quick Scan Results >Action Required > Status column.

Requested to enhance to display in Quick Scan Results >Action Required > Status column. Currently if the quick scan FAILED there is no display of error messages. User has to open the quick scan job result and then going thru ne or two more stsps to see the FAILED errors. Requested Enhancment to display the error on the MAIN QUick scan Result Page would be helpful.

    Thanks Sudha! We are enhancing the entire discovery experience to make the job states/errors and logs easier to view and access. Looking forward to your feedback on this new experience. Thanks

    The error messages should align to why there would be a failure/error. If we can group by user friendly names that would be best I mentioned. Maybe: "Table\View does not exist", "No access to Select from Table\View", "Delayed Response from Source Connection", etc would be helpful. This is my Manager David's response to my comments. Thanks.

    It is good to display a validation message appropriately reflecting the error. Ex: IF the entire scan job FAILED due to Table not existed in TDDD then the message should reflect "Table not existed in TDDD" instead of No message or no reason for FAILED status and no one can run the quick scan job. Jobs gets stuck there . Thanks
