Create a New Agent Group

You can use agent groups to organize and manage the agents linked to your account. You can add an agent to more than one group, and configure scans to use these groups as targets.

Use this procedure to create an agent group in Tenable Nessus Manager.

To create a new agent group:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Sensors.

    The Linked Agents page appears. By default, Linked Agents is selected in the left navigation menu and the Linked Agents tab is active.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Agent Groups.

    The Agent Groups page appears.

  3. In the upper-right corner, click the New Group button.

    The New Agent Group window appears.

  4. In the Name box, type a name for the new agent group.
  5. Click Add.

    Tenable Nessus Manager adds the agent group and it appears in the table.

What to do next:

  • Configure user permissions for the agent group.
  • Use the agent group in an agent scan configuration.
