Set a Baseline for a Project

Tenable Cloud Security allows you to set a baseline for a project by recording the time stamp of the scan when the baseline is set. A baseline allows you to compare and identify cloud-to-cloud drifts between scans. Tenable recommends that you set a baseline for your project to review the drifts in every scan from the initial configuration when the baseline was set. You can also reset the baseline to a new time, if required. If you do not set a baseline for a project, Tenable Cloud Security calculates cloud-to-cloud drifts by comparing the current scan with the previous scan.

To set a baseline for a project:

  1. On the Tenable Cloud Security home page, click Projects & Connections.

    The Projects tab with the list of all projects appears by default.

  2. In the row for the project for which you want to set a baseline, click > Set baseline.

    A confirmation message appears.

  3. Click OK.

    The project baseline is set with the current time and date.

    Note: To reset the baseline to the current date and time, click the baseline time on the project and click OK in the confirmation message.
