Stop a Running Scan

Required Scan Permissions: Can Control

When you stop a scan, Tenable Vulnerability Management terminates all tasks for the scan and categorizes the scan as canceled. The scan results associated with the scan reflect only the completed tasks. You cannot stop individual tasks, only the scan as a whole.

To stop a running scan:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the Menu button.

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane, click Scans.

    The Scans page appears.

  3. In the scans table, roll over the scan you want to stop.

  4. In the row, click the More button.

    A menu appears.

  5. Click Stop.

    A confirmation window appears.

  6. In the confirmation window, click Stop.

    Tenable Vulnerability Management stops the scan. The Status column updates to reflect the status of the scan.
