Create a Dynamic Analysis with a pause and resume schedule using the REST API

You can use the Dynamic Analysis API to create an analysis that pauses and resumes scanning at specific times.

To complete this task:

  1. Enter values for the scan_config_request, schedule, and scan_blackout_schedule properties in the JSON file.

  2. Send the following request:

    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac POST "" < input.json

    This is an example of a Dynamic Analysis that contains a pause and resume time frame between 9:00pm and 11:00pm:

    "name": "Name-of-Your-Dynamic-Analysis",
    "scans": [
    "scan_config_request": {
    "target_url": {
    "url": ""
    "schedule": {
    "start_date": "2019-09-27T16:49:00-04:00",
    "duration": {
    "length": 1,
    "unit": "DAY"
    "scan_blackout_schedule": {
    "blackout_type": "THESE_HOURS",
    "blackout_start_time": "21:00",
    "blackout_end_time": "23:00",
    "blackout_days": null
