Schedule a Test stage only

About this task

A full scan consists of two stages: Explore and Test. If it is not necessary to run the Explore stage each time, you can configure a scheduled scan to run the Test stage only. This is done using Scheduled Tasks on the Windows® Control Panel.


  1. In AppScan®, Schedule a new scan (Tools | Scan Scheduler | New).
  2. On the Windows® Start menu, click Control Panel | Scheduled Tasks.
    Note: If the Scheduled Task option does not appear on your Windows® Control Panel, you may be in Category View which does not display all options. If necessary switch to Classic View.

    The Windows® Scheduled Tasks dialog box opens, with the task that you created in AppScan® on the list of tasks.

  3. Right-click on the AppScan® scheduled scan and select Properties from the pop-up menu.

    The Scheduled Task Properties dialog box opens.

  4. In the Run field, at the very end of the text string (after the final quotation marks), type in: [space][hyphen]retest
  5. Click OK.

    When the scheduled time arrives the Test stage only will run.
