Retrieve Vulnerability Data from

The vulnerability export APIs provide the ability to retrieve all vulnerabilities on each asset, including the vulnerability state, for integration into third-party tools. With these APIs, you can perform a large initial synchronization of with a third-party tool. You can then retrieve differentials to update on a regular basis. For example, you can use the vulnerability export APIs to retrieve all vulnerabilities that are currently active in your environment and integrate them with a ticketing system. You can then leverage the differential functionality to:

  • Retrieve newly discovered vulnerabilities and create new tickets.
  • Retrieve fixed vulnerabilities to automatically close open tickets.

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

To retrieve vulnerability 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.
