Force stops a scan. A force stop cancels all the scan's incomplete scan tasks and updates the scan status to aborted. Tenable Vulnerability Management processes and indexes the completed scan tasks. After you force stop a scan, Tenable recommends re-running the scan in its entirety to ensure total scan coverage.
You can use the force stop endpoint to abort a stalled scan in the stopping or publishing status. This can be helpful when you need to abort a scan before a freeze window or before a subsequent scheduled scan begins.
You can only force stop a scan that has a status of stopping or publishing. For more information about scan statuses, see Scan Status.
Requires SCAN OPERATOR  user permissions and CAN EXECUTE  scan permissions. See Permissions.
