Adding 9.0 CPE report to source install of 20.08


I am trying to get the CPE report from 9.0. When I list reports, I see 6 reports: Anonymous XML, CSV Results, ITG, PDF, TXT, and XML.

I installed Greenbone from git sources following I have updated the feeds, and GVMD_DATA shows “8 days old.”

How do I get the version 9 CPE report into 20.08? I’ve looked at the release notes that talk about copy the report_formats directory when migrating, but I did not migrate, it was a fresh install. I tried creating a report_formats directory in various places (/usr/share/gvm/gvmd/report_formats and /opt/gvm/share/gvm/gvmd/report_formats) and doing gvmd --modify-settings, but nothing seems to kick off the code in manage_sql_report_formats.c.

GVM versions
