Continue the scan after it has errored out in specific phase.

Hi, My scan errored out with the reason "Errors: skipping phase A2. Too many ..." I fixed the issue and I want the scan to continue from where it left off. That is, from A2 phase instead of starting from scratch. But I do not see an option for that. Will "Audit again" continue the scan from where it left off or it will start the scan anew? Thanks and have a great day !!

Hi Mohamed, If the scan has paused, you can continue scanning by pressing the play button and it will continue where it left off but it won't go back and scan what it has already scanned or skipped. There is an option for the scanner to follow-up for any timed-out requests but it will do that at the end of a phase and if that phase has already passed, you will have to rerun the scan. Regards, Syed

The scan shows as "Completed" after those errors. I selected "Audit again" and it added those requests again to the scan and has initiated the scan from scratch. It does not continue from A2.

The scan won't continue from the same phase. It will start from the scratch. Once a scan is finished, or a phase has passed, you cannot start it again without starting the whole scan from scratch.
