At Intruder, you can schedule weekly, monthly, quarterly or run on-demand scans to look for weaknesses that hackers could exploit.

Your first scan is usually the day after you begin your subscription, and starts at midnight UTC timezone. If you're on a Pro or Verified plan, you can edit your scheduled scan day and time to whatever suits you best or create multiple scheduled scans on specific targets.

To schedule a new scan click on this icon (from the top of the dashboard or the scans page):

You now see the following popup:

  • Select your tag(s) or target(s) from the dropdown. If you select targets, they will be included in the scan. If you select one or many tags, all targets that match the tags at the time of the scan will be included.
    Please note that if you don't select anything, it will scan all active targets that you have in the Intruder portal at the time the scan runs.

  • Choose a date and time for the scan to start.

  • Choose whether this is a one-off scan (i.e. it'll run once and then won't repeat) or whether it's a repeating scan.

  • If you choose to make the scan repeat monthly, it will run first at the date and time specified and then repeat on that day of every month. Note that if you create a repeating scan that starts on a day that is greater than 28 - e.g. 31st - it will run on the last day of the month in months that have less than 31 days.

  • If you choose to make the scan repeat weekly, it will run first at the date and time specified and then repeat every 7 days.

  • If you choose quarterly, it will run first at the date and time specified and then repeat every 3 months.

  • Add a scan name so you can identify it easily on the scans page.

When you're done, click Create Scan.
