Manually resume a paused Dynamic Analysis

In the Veracode Platform, you can manually resume a scheduled Dynamic Analysis that is paused due to an authentication error.

For example, if an analysis uses invalid credentials to sign in to a target URL, 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 URL.

Before you begin:

Ensure you have:

  • Enabled the Auto-Pause 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, in the Pause and Resume section, ensure Pause automatically and resume is set to manually.
  • Resolved the authentication errors.

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 to resume.
  3. From the Actions menu , select Resume Analysis. When you scheduled the analysis, if you set Pause automatically and resume to resume automatically, the Resume Analysis action is disabled. The analysis resumes and continues to run on its schedule.
