Launch a Terrascan Scan

Note: You can only launch a Terrascan scan in Tenable Nessus Expert. If you do not have Tenable Nessus Expert, you need to run the Terrascan executable from the command line interface (CLI) to gather scan results.

Once you set up a Terrascan scan configuration, you can launch a scan from the Tenable Nessus Expert user interface.

Before you begin:

To launch a Terrascan scan:

  1. Under Resources in the left-side navigation pane, click Terrascan.

    The Scans page appears.

  2. In the scan table, roll over the scan you want to edit.

  3. In the scan row, click the button.

    Nessus launches the scan. Once the scan completes, you can download the scan results from the scan's history page.
