Update the Offered Nessus Agent Version in Nessus Manager

Sometimes, such as after you update the agent update plan in Nessus Manager, you might want to update the Nessus Agent version that Nessus Manager offers from the Nessus feed.

To update the offered Nessus Agent version manually:

  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 Updates.

    The Agent Updates page appears.

  3. In the upper-left corner of the page, click the Manual Software Updates button.

    Nessus Manager updates the version it offers to Nessus Agents from the Nessus feed.

    Note: The Manual Software Update button updates the offered Nessus Agent version based on the saved agent update plan. For example, if you set the plan to GA releases, save, and click the button, your offered Nessus Agent version updates to the latest GA version. The button does not show if you selected Disable agent version updates.
