How to Increase Scanner Timeout

If you see a red "Time out" while on the Scans page, it could be because the scanner is taking longer than usual to complete the scan.

You can fix this by adjusting your configuration file's maximum scan time (measured in seconds). Simply add scan_timeout: 1200 to the file under the with: section, and the scanner can run for up to 20 minutes (60 seconds 20 times) as shown in Sierra Enterprise's workflow. The configuration file can be found in either your project's Pipeline/Actions folder if you're doing manual provisioning or in the .boost Project's Pipeline/Actions folder using Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP).


Manual changes made to a boost.yml file created by ZTP will be overwritten the next time the ZTP configuration is changed.
