Create a scan schedule

Note: Hosts that match a scheduled target are only run at the scheduled time. The scanner does not scan them as part of its regular scanning queue.

  1. Sign in to the Risk Dashboard.

  2. In the navigation menu, click Config > Scanner Config.

  3. In the Scanning Schedule section, click Add a new scan schedule.

    The Configure Scanner Schedule dialog appears.

    Tip: Click Cancel or press ESC to close this dialog.

  4. In the Targets field, in a comma-separated list, enter IP addresses or networks of the targets you want scanned.

    See Managed Risk Scanner FAQ for more information.
