Path: Scans > Blackout Windows
You can set a blackout window in Tenable.sc to specify a time frame when you do not want Tenable.sc to scan specific targets. This prevents remediation or ad-hoc scans from running during undesired time frames, such as during production hours. For more information about what happens to in-progress scans at the start of a blackout window, see the knowledge base article.
Blackout windows are organizational and affect all scans in the creating user’s organization. Only users with the Manage Blackout Windows permission can add, edit, or delete blackout windows.
