Retrieve Asset Data from

The asset export APIs provide the ability to retrieve all assets and related metadata from for integration into third-party systems. With these APIs, you can perform a large initial synchronization of with a third-party system. You can then retrieve differentials to update on a regular basis. For example, you can use the asset export APIs to retrieve all known assets, then use the data to create and regularly update your configuration management database (CMDB).

The API exports asset data in data chunks. You can configure chunk size to maximize network performance and satisfy data ingestion requirements for third-party applications.

To retrieve asset data using the API, Tenable recommends the following approach:

  1. Generate the export file.
  2. Query for the export generation status and chunk identification information.
  3. Download completed export chunks.
  4. Retrieve agent data related to the assets.

    Note: Asset data is only relevant if the has_agent parameter is set to true for assets in the export chunk.
