Suspend or Resume a Scheduled Active Scan
Required User Role: Organizational user with appropriate permissions. For more information, see User Roles.
If you suspend a scheduled active scan, Tenable Security Center stops launching new scans for that active scan configuration. Tenable Security Center does not disrupt scans already in progress or prevent users from launching scans on demand.
If you resume a suspended active scan, Tenable Security Center resumes launching scans on the schedule configured for that active scan.
For more information, see Active Scans.
Before you begin:
- Configure a scheduled active scan, as described in Add an Active Scan.
