By default, Security for Confluence will automatically scan new and updated content. This scanning functionality will only be engaged once a space has been scanned, so that spaces which you don’t wish to scan in the first place will remain unscanned.

The automatic scanning status of a space can be seen in its Security Analysis:

Auto-scanning can be disabled by a Confluence administrator. Simply visit the Settings Page and toggle the “Keep space scans up-to-date” switch.

Only Confluence administrators have access to these settings.

If auto-scanning is changed, reloading the Security Analysis will reflect the change.
