Running a systems discovery job

After a successful discovery job is completed, the new systems, domains, computers, and accounts are listed under the appropriate tabs within Admin Portal. If a discovered system already exists in Zero Trust Privileged Access Service and the profile has "Apply Actions to New and Existing Systems", the system is updated. Other existing discovered objects are left unchanged by the discovery process.
