Content Discovery Queued Tasks

Marcus | Last updated: Dec 01, 2017 08:15AM UTC

Hi, Could the queued tasks in the Discovery Session have the same functionality as the Scanner Scan Queue? This would allow the user to cancel individual discovery tasks to lower bandwidth/time, or to prioritise particular areas ahead of others. For example - during a recent long-running discovery scan, I was monitoring it and noticed a particular directory was flagged and added to the queued tasks. I checked, and realised that the directory would not be relevant. Without reconfiguring, I would have liked to have right-clicked on the entry and cancelled further tasks into that particular path. Thanks

Hi Marcus, Thanks for getting in touch. I agree, this would be a very helpful feature. It has been requested a couple of other times. Right now, the development team are busy working on some other major features. We've captured this on the development plan; we'll let you know when we make progress.

Please add this feature. Being able to remove queued tasks would be a huge time saver.

Hi Eric. We still have this logged in our development backlog. Unfortunately, we can't provide an ETA.

I'm searching this feature and guess that's not implemented ... Will be so useful ...

Hi Asmu, This particular feature request is still in our development backlog, I am afraid. I have, however, added your interest to this particular request so that we can accurately monitor the demand for it. We will also update this forum thread if we have any further news to share about it.
