Migration Tool FAQs

Consider the following frequently asked questions when planning your migration.

Is the migration tool supported for my environment?

For more information about local machine, Tenable.sc, and Tenable.io requirements, see Environment Requirements.

Will the migration tool migrate all of my Tenable.sc data?

No. For more information about migration limitations, see Migrated Data and Post-Migration Action Items.

Do I need to back up my Tenable.sc before performing the migration?

Tenable™ recommends backing up your Tenable.sc regularly as a deployment best practice, but the migration tool does not remove any data from Tenable.sc. Your Tenable.sc deployment continues running as configured.

Can I run the migration tool more than once?

Yes. If you run the tool several times with the same Tenable.io instance, old Tenable.io scan results, user accounts, and data are preserved. Uniquely named Tenable.sc scan results, user accounts, and data from the new migrations are added to Tenable.io. For more specific information about how the migration tool handles conflicts, see Migrated Data and Post-Migration Action Items.

Should I run the migration tool via the user interface or via the CLI?

The user interface is a streamlined, guided method to configure and run the migration tool. Experienced users may prefer the CLI method.

Is there Tenable.sc or Tenable.io performance impact during the migration?

No.

How long does it take to run the migration tool?

Migration time varies depending on the number and complexity of your scan policies and scan results.

Can I exclude Tenable.sc data from migration?

Yes. When configuring migration tool settings, you can select the Migrate all data except scan results and/or Migrate scan results to indicate the data you want to migrate.

Selecting Migrate all data except scan results but not Migrate scan results excludes scan results from the migration and shortens your migration time.

How do I perform post-migration action items in Tenable.io?

For more information about required post-migration action items, see Migrated Data and Post-Migration Action Items. For more information about configuring Tenable.io features, see the Tenable.io User Guide.
