Pause or Resume a Scan

Required User Role: Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

When you a pause a scan, Tenable.io pauses all active tasks for that scan. The paused tasks continue to fill the task capacity of the scanner that the tasks were assigned to. Tenable.io does not dispatch new tasks from a paused scan job. When you resume a scan, the tasks start from the point at which the scan was paused.

To pause a scan:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Scans.

    The My Scans page appears.

  2. (Optional) In the left navigation bar, click a different folder.
  3. In the scans table, next to a running scan, click the button to pause the scan.

    Tenable.io pauses the scan.

To resume a scan:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Scans.

    The My Scans page appears.

  2. (Optional) In the left navigation bar, click a different folder.
  3. In the scans table, next to a paused scan, click the launch button to resume the scan.

    Tenable.io resumes the scan from the point at which it was paused.
