Launch a Terrascan Scan

Note: You can only launch a Terrascan scan in Nessus Expert. If you do not have 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 Nessus Expert user interface.

To launch a Terrascan scan:

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

    The Terrascan > About page appears.

  2. Below Terrascan, click the Scans tab.

    The Terrascan > Scans page opens.

  3. Do one of the following:

    1. In the scan table, double-click the scan configuration.

      The configuration's scan history page appears.

    2. In the upper-right corner, click Launch.


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

    2. 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 scan history page.
