Managing tasks

You can view and manage discovery scans and other background actions from the Tasks page. The Active and Completed task sections will show standard tasks, such as scans and imports, along with their current progress and summarized results. You can search or filter the tasks using different attributes.

Submenus under Tasks allow you to view a subset of tasks. You can filter by active, scheduled, recurring, completed or failed tasks. The Search submenu allows you to browse and search your complete task history.

Scheduled tasks are one-off actions that will be started in the future, while recurring tasks are actions that re-occur on a regular basis. Recurring scan tasks generate a new standard task on each iteration of their schedule. Both scheduled and recurring scans will only launch if their associated Explorer is online and no other scan tasks are running.

The Tasks page allows Scheduled and Recurring tasks to be removed and Active tasks to be stopped. Please note that stopping an active Scan task may take a few moments, as the status of the task is not updated until the Explorer confirms that the scan was terminated.

Clicking on the task type or the summary in the Information column will present details of that task. For scan and import tasks, these details include the parameters used, summary of the site changes made as a result, and a link to the change report JSON.
