Intruder's scheduled scans ensure your systems are checked for weaknesses on a regular basis. But what if you've deployed a fix for an issue we found and want to check that its actually been resolved? That's where Intruder's Scan now functionality comes in.

Where can I kick off a scan from?

The simplest way to kick off a scan is to press the green button at the top right of the Dashboard.

Another option is to click the 'Scan Now' button on the Scans Page

You can also start scans from the Targets Page by (1) checking the box next to the desired target(s) and then (2) pressing 'Scan'.

Or by clicking a target and viewing the Target Detail Page. Clicking the green 'Scan Now' button will initiate a scan on this target.

What targets get scanned?

By default, when you click "Scan now", it will start a scan on all of your targets. On the popup modal you can also provide a name/description for the scan and also specify some advanced parameters for the scan.

If you want to scan individual tags or targets, just select them from the dropdown menu before you click "Scan now":

Once the results are in we'll notify you via email and update the portal accordingly. Of course, should you want to download any of your results as a PDF or CSV report, that option is available to you.
