Note: This section describes the new Tenable.io interface. For information about the classic interface, see Users in the Classic Interface.

User accounts enable you to provide access to Tenable.io and manage permissions for Tenable.io resources. Only administrators can create and manage user accounts.

To access the Users page, click Settings in the left navigation plane, then click the Users widget.

The Users page displays a table of all Tenable.io user accounts. This documentation refers to that table as the users table.

Each row of the users table includes the user name, the dates of the last login and last failed login attempt, the total number of failed attempts, and the role assigned to the account.

To control a user's permissions in Tenable.io, you can assign roles to user accounts. The following table briefly describes the available user roles and related permissions. For detailed permissions information, see User Role Permissions.

Note: You can disable a user account to prevent a user from accessing Tenable.io. When you disable a user account, Tenable.io retains the user role assigned to that user.
