Create a Policy
Required User Role: Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator
To create a scan policy:
In the top navigation bar, click Scans.
The My Scans page appears.
In the left navigation bar, click Policies.
The Policies page appears.
In the upper-right corner, click the New Policy button.
The New Policy page appears.
- Select a policy template.
- In the Settings tab, manage the policy settings.
(Optional) In the Credentials tab, add credentials to the policy.
Note: Any credentials added to a scan (managed or scan-specific) override policy-specific credentials. Tenable recommends adding managed credentials to scans, instead of adding credentials to policies.
- (Optional) In the Compliance tab, specify which platforms you want to audit for compliance. Tenable, Inc. provides best practice audits for each platform. Additionally, you can upload a custom audit file.
- (Optional; Advanced Network Scan only) In the Plugins tab, select security checks by plugin.
- Click Save.
Tenable.io creates the policy and assigns you owner permissions for the policy.
