Schedule a Dynamic Analysis

Dynamic Analysis

You must have the Creator, Submitter, or Security Lead role to be able to schedule a Dynamic Analysis.
By default, your Dynamic Analysis is not scheduled. If you do not want to schedule your Dynamic Analysis, you can save the analysis to submit later or run a prescan, which provides feedback in the Prescan Results tab of the Dynamic Analysis summary page.

When you are ready to run it, you can start your Dynamic Analysis immediately or schedule it to run at a date up to 90 days in the future.

To schedule a Dynamic Analysis for a date in the future:
  1. After you create or configure the Dynamic Analysis, click Schedule at the bottom of the screen.
  2. In the Schedule section, select Once.
  3. Switch on the Prescan option if you want to prescan the analysis, but you must schedule your analysis at least two hours in the future to allow time for the prescan.
  4. Click the calendar icon and select the date and time on which you want the scan to start.
  5. In the Analysis Duration field, enter the maximum number of days you want the Dynamic Analysis to run.
  6. Click Review and Submit to save your options and move to the final step in starting your Dynamic Analysis.


    The prescan starts immediately after submission, and the full scan starts at the scheduled time.

From the All Dynamic Analyses list, you can review the schedule of any Dynamic Analysis by clicking the clock icon in the row for that Dynamic Analysis. The respective schedule appears, providing at-a-glance information.


If a Dynamic Analysis is scheduled to run only once or if the recurrence timeframe has ended, you can verify the status of the schedule to see if any more occurrences are scheduled.
  1. In the All Dynamic Analyses list, select Configure from the Actions menu in the row of the Dynamic Analysis that you want to check.
  2. At the bottom of the Edit screen, click Schedule.
On the Edit Schedule page, you can see if the Dynamic Analysis is saved or scheduled to run again. If there is a schedule in place that you want to cancel, select Cancel schedule and save for later. If you have no further changes to make, click Review and Submit.


If you want to rescan the same analysis again with the same configuration, edit the schedule of the analysis and schedule it to rerun on your new selected day and time.
