Path: Scans > Blackout Windows

Note: At the beginning of the blackout window period, the system stops any currently running scans.

The blackout window in SecurityCenter specifies a timeframe where new scans cannot launch. This prevents remediation or ad-hoc scans from running during undesired timeframes, such as during production hours.

Blackout windows are organizational and affect all scans in the creating user’s organization. Only users with the Manage Blackout Windows permission can perform blackout window additions.

For more information, see Add a Blackout Window, Edit a Blackout Window, and Delete a Blackout Window.
