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.sc stops launching new scans for that active scan configuration. Tenable.sc does not disrupt scans already in progress or prevent users from launching scans on demand.

If you resume a suspended active scan, Tenable.sc resumes launching scans on the schedule configured for that active scan.

For more information, see Active Scans.
