Cloud Accounts cannot be Associated with this Project

You cannot associate cloud accounts to default projects created by Tenable Cloud Security. Tenable Cloud Security creates default projects in the following scenarios:

  • Onboarding all repositories automatically

    Tenable Cloud Security creates default projects for each SCM type. For example, Default Gitlab Repositories.

  • Integrating Terraform cloud repositories

    Tenable Cloud Security creates a default project, Default_TF_Cloud_Project, when you start a new run for a Terraform repository.


Onboard the cloud account to a project and then move the repositories in the default project to the project you created for the cloud account.

Perform the following tasks:

  1. Create a project.

  2. Onboard a cloud account to the project.

  3. In Tenable Cloud Security, go to Projects and Connections.

  4. Click the Repositories tab.

  5. Select the check box next to the repositories in the default project.

  6. Click Assign Project.

    The Select a Project page appears.

  7. Select the project you created in Step 1.

  8. Click Assign.

    The repository and cloud account now belong to the same project.

  9. From the Projects tab, select the default project and click Delete to delete the default project.
