Starting and stopping discovery

  • Stopped

When you start the discovery process, any runs that are on hold or waiting start transition into In progress. If a run is on hold but outside its scheduled window, it does not start.

When you stop the discovery process, any regular or snapshot runs currently in progress stop. The status changes to Stopping while the discovery process is stopping.
