Manually resume a paused Dynamic Analysis

You can manually resume a scheduled Dynamic Analysis that is paused in the Veracode Platform. The analysis typically pauses when there is an authentication error that prevents it from signing in to a target site.

For example, if an analysis uses invalid credentials to sign in to a target site, after multiple attempts, the analysis changes to a paused state. After you update the credentials in the analysis configuration for a web application or API, you can manually resume the analysis. The analysis resumes its schedule and uses the updated credentials to sign in to the site.

Before you begin:

Ensure you have:

  • Enabled the manual resume feature for your Veracode account. To enable this feature, contact Veracode Technical Support.
  • A Veracode account with the Creator, Submitter, or Security Lead role.
  • Created a Dynamic Analysis that is scheduled to run one-time or on a recurring schedule. In the Veracode Platform, on the Schedule page for the analysis, ensure Pause and Resume is set to manually.

To complete this task:

  1. In the Veracode Platform, select Scans & Analysis > Dynamic Analysis.

  2. On the All Dynamic Analyses page, locate the row for the analysis you want resume.

  3. From the Actions menu , select Resume Analysis. When you scheduled the analysis, if you set Pause and Resume to resume automatically, Resume Analysis is disabled.

    The analysis resumes and continues to run on its schedule.
