Pause, Resume, or Stop Scans on a Managed Tenable.sc Instance
Required User Role: Tenable.sc Director Administrator
From Tenable.sc Director, you can pause, resume, and stop scans that are running on managed Tenable.sc instances.
If you pause a scan, the scan temporarily stops scanning targets. You can resume a paused scan at any time.
If you stop a scan, you can choose to create a rollover scan.
