How do I get changes to filters in a published scan job to show in ASE?

I have a scan which was previously run without filters and published to ASE with 1000+ findings. Now I’ve added filters that would remove all findings that are not definitive, not high or medium, and a variety of other findings and should result in only 34 findings being considered new/open. Here is the summary from the published .ozasmt from the latest scan with filters:

*Scanned project Services – [redacted]-8 : Total files: 183 Total findings: 15 Total lines: 31041 vkloc: 0.483232 v-density: 483.231855

Scanned application [redacted] : Total files: 1368 Total findings: 34 Total lines: 202341 vkloc: 0.168033 v-density: 159.137298
Scan completed: Total files: 1368 Total findings: 34 Total lines: 202341 vkloc: 0.168033 v-density: 159.137298
Elapsed Time – 0 Hour(s) 20 Minute(s) 31 Second(s)*

Unfortunately while the total findings are listed as 34 here – when I look in ASE the report associated with the job as well as the application the scan is associated with they are both still showing 1000+ findings as new/open. I confirmed that the job and the report ran at the time the results were published from appscan (CLI is being used) and that the scan published successfully. Also all of the individual findings say they were last updated at the same time as the last publish occurred.

Any ideas? I would try deleting the job and recreating it but from past experience that does nothing to clear the previously imported results.

2 or more RequestFilter for same FilteredServices

Our Navigator version is 2.0.2
we are planning to implement new desktop to our existing Navigator instance
our existing implementation has already few request and response filters
for this new Desktop we want to override few of existing filters ( only for new Desktop , existing desktop should work as is )
one good example is request filters ( request and response ) on /cm/addItem
So,
can we create new pligin jar and add request and response filter on /cm/addItem ?
If Yes : Will Navigator execute both of the request and response filter ( one from existing plugin , and one from the new one which we will create now) ?
If Yes : will there be any order of execution ?

And at last is it possible.
