Delete Assets from a Network in the Classic Interface

Required User Role: Scan Manager or Administrator

You can delete assets by filtering for IP addresses on a network and deleting the assets that match the filter.

When you delete an asset, Tenable.io deletes the asset from the default view of the assets table, deletes vulnerability data associated with the asset, and stops matching scan results to the asset. To view deleted assets, see View Deleted Assets.

Tip: If you want to remove an asset from a network but not delete the asset, see Move Assets to a Network in the Classic Interface.

To delete assets from a network:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Scans.

    The My Scans page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Scanners.

    The Scanners page appears.

  3. Click the Networks tab.

    The Networks page appears. This page contains a table listing the default network and all custom networks in your Tenable.io instance.

  4. In the table, click the button next to the network that contains the assets you want to delete.

    A drop-down box appears.

  5. Click Delete Assets.

    The Delete Assets from Network dialog box appears.

  6. In the text box, type the IPv4 addresses of the assets you want to delete, in the format of a comma-separated list, range, or subnet with CIDR notation.
  7. Click Search.

    Tenable.io displays the number of assets that match your search.

    Tip: To view the assets that match your search, click View Results in a New Tab.

  8. Click Delete.

    Tenable.io deletes the selected assets.

    Note: Tenable.io may take some time to delete the assets, depending on the system load, the number of matching assets, and the number of vulnerabilities.
