Start a Scan Machine for Tenable.sc

To start a scan machine for Tenable.sc you must run the following python script.--> How is this different from starting a remediation scan in the previous step?

activate_machine_scan.py:

This script does the following:

  • Provides a list to select a policy name, scan nam, and IP address to start the scan.
  • Collects all input field values in a python file and provides the call method to make the REST API call to get a device count for a particular indicator.
  • Handles 200 response codes as successful and all others as failures.
