When you stop a scan, Tenable.io terminates all tasks for the scan and categorizes the scan as canceled. The Tenable.io scan results associated with the scan reflect only the completed tasks. You cannot stop individual tasks, only the scan as a whole.
To stop a scan:
In the top navigation bar, click Scans.
The My Scans page appears.
- (Optional) In the left navigation bar, click a different folder.
In the scans table, next to a running or paused scan, click the button to stop the scan.
Tenable.io stops the scan.
